North Side High School football coach Mike Brevard has stepped down to take an assistant coaching position with the University of Saint Francis football program.

Brevard will serve as a linebackers coach at his alma mater, he announced in a post on Twitter.

"Coaching college football has always been a dream of mine," Brevard wrote. "I have learned to pursuie those dreams when you can because opportunities don't always come along."

Brevard was a linebacker for USF from 2010 through 2014, and the Indianapolis native says he's now home in joining Kevin Donley's staff.

Brevard grew North Side into a formidable foe, improving the team's record from 0-10 to 2-8 to 4-6 to 5-6 in his four seasons as head coach. North Side won its first postseason game in seven seasons when it beat Northrop 42-21 in the sectional semi-final in October.

"Thank you for leading the Legends in a way only you could," North Side football praised Brevard in a tweet. "Words will never be enough for everything you have done the last 4 years. We appreciate the countless hours you have put in and all of the life lessons you have taught us along the way."

"I pray that I have made a difference and left North Side betther than when I entered," Brevard added.
