After rebounding from a winless season with a 3-3 start, Kenwood High's first-year football coach is out of the post.
Stephen Von Canon was removed from the coaching position Tuesday. Assistant coach Brian Powell will serve as interim coach for the remainder of the season, Kenwood athletic director Derek Maki said in an email. Maki declined to comment further on the circumstances surrounding Von Canon's removal. Von Canon also teaches science at Kenwood.
Von Canon did not respond to a phone message left Tuesday.
According to an August story on Varsity Sports Network, Von Canon, a Towson University graduate, has 12 years of coaching experience at C. Milton Wright, Dundalk and Parkville high schools, and spent 15 years as an official in high school and college football.
Von Canon's six-game tenure at Kenwood saw the Bluebirds spring into action with a 42-6 opening win at Dulaney, and the team's first win against Eastern Tech in 16 years.
