Fluvanna County announced former Buckingham coach Josh Wallace as its new head football coach back in January but Wallace stepped down Tuesday before coaching a game.
That leaves Fluvanna back at square one in its football coaching search as they look to replace Steve Szarmach after his three seasons at the helm. Fluvanna athletic director Scott Morris wasn’t clear as of Wednesday how that search was going to proceed, whether or not they’d look for an interim coach to fill the gap or open it back up to a process now, but tweeted that they’d be looking to fill the position as soon as possible.
Coach Wallace has decided to step down as our head football coach we will fill the position as soon as possible. Keep supporting the flucos. #Go Flucos

Fluvanna’s next coach will be trying to end a playoff drought which stretches back to 2000. Fluvanna’s last winning season came the following year in 2001. The Flucos are looking to win their first Jefferson District matchup since they beat Louisa County in 2013. After a winless 2015, the Flucos went 1-9 in 2016. Fluvanna finished 2-8 last year to improve for the second straight season.
