TECUMSEH — Tecumseh Public Schools (TPS) recently accepted the resignation of Tecumseh High School varsity football coach Steve Robb.
A press release sent out by the Indians’ new Athletic Director, Jon Zajac, stated that he met with Robb and the one-season coach resigned from his position effective December 14. 
In his letter of resignation, coach Robb said, “Following our conversation today, I have made the decision to step down as head football coach at Tecumseh High School. I enjoyed our conversation and appreciated your honesty and candid approach to things. The issues that need to be addressed and the improvements that need to be made are all possible through dedication and hard work over a period of time. At this time, I do not feel that I am the coach to lead the Indians to the results we desire. 
“Thank you to everyone in the community for your support, I had a great experience. I truly want to thank my players for the relationships we built, and for their determination, perseverance and positive attitude. All the best to you in your future endeavors! I will miss you.”
The press release ended with Tecumseh Public Schools thanking coach Robb and his family for their time with the Indians. “We wish him and his family the best,” TPS said.
Superintendent Kelly Coffin stated that Robb resigned because of the time he spent commuting from home and Tecumseh High School. “He drives an hour and ten minutes both ways,” said Coffin. “He’s traveled like this for a year and the drive was too long.”
Robb and his Indians went 4-5 overall and 3-2 in the Southeastern Conference.
