Football: Boca Ciega hires former standout Myron Dillard as coach — June 8

Former Boca Ciega standout Myron Dillard, who was working as the director of football recruiting at Bethune Cookman, is returning to his alma mater as head coach. 

The hiring was announced on Thursday. 

Dillard replaces Matt Gudorf, who stepped down last month after two seasons. 

For the past decade, Dillard has coached at the high school and collegiate level. He was the receivers coach at St. Petersburg from 2013-18 before moving on to Florida A&M as a graduate assistant from 2018-20. 

After that, Dillard became head coach and athletic director at Governors Charter Academy in 2020 before becoming an assistant at New Mexico Military in ‘21. 

Last season, Dillard worked as a defensive analyst at Florida Atlantic, then took on the role as recruiting coordinator at Bethune Cookman this year.

At Boca Ciega, Dillard ran for 1,173 yards and scored 10 touchdowns on the ground as a senior in 2004.
