Defensive coordinator Jay Mayet is the interim head football coach at Parkview Baptist, according to a school news release.

“I don’t think this is anything major,” Mayet said. “It’s just a transition period, a lot like what we went through last spring. The important thing is to show the parents and students there is a leadership structure in place until a decision is made.”

Parkview head coach Kenny Guillot resigned Thursday after 15 seasons, citing health-related concerns. Mayet, now in his 16th season at Parkview, also handled day-to-day duties on an interim basis last spring when Guillot was being treated for lymphoma.

The 69-year-old Guillot compiled a 164-31 in 15 seasons at the school, winning four Class 3A state titles and nine district titles. The Eagles were 8-3 last spring and advanced to the Division II semifinals. Guillot will remain as athletic director.

“After consultation with coach Guillot and program supporters, a decision was made to move coach Mayet into the interim position in order to provide an immediate structure and stability to our year-round program,” Parkview Baptist Superintendent Don Mayes said. “Mayet is Parkview’s most tenured coach and will provide consistency and direction in the day-to-day operations while we follow a process that will lead to Parkview’s continued success.”
