Piper High School officially announced they had hired Marjory Stoneman Douglas Quentin Short as their next varsity coach.

Short, who won Coach of the Year, has led MSD for four years after working previously as an assistant. He took the Eagles to the playoffs three times and, in 2022, led the team to their first postseason victory since 2007 over Santaluces High School.

“Stoneman Douglas has been home for the past nine years,” Short said. “I am very thankful for the time spent there as an assistant coach and the past four years as the head coach. It will always hold a special place in my heart. So proud of the players and coaches for what we have been able to accomplish and wish the program nothing but success in the future.”

He finishes his tenure with MSD with a record of 22-10. Short is set to take over for a team that went 5-4 this past season.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to lead the Piper High School football program and to be able to coach in the city I live in,” Short added. “I’m ready for the chapter in my career.”
