Rulo out as Helias football coach

Helias High School announced it will not keep Tim Rulo on as head football coach for another season.

“While we part on amicable terms, I have been informed that the administration would like to take the program in another direction,” Rulo said in a letter released Friday morning. “I would like to express my sincere thanks to those who have supported and cared for myself and my family during our three years here.”

Rulo was hired in spring 2015 after coaching the South Callaway Bulldogs for seven seasons.

Neither Rulo nor the administration expounded on the reason for the school’s action.

“He will stay on the faculty teaching leadership, strength and conditioning classes, and as
head track coach,” said the Rev. Stephen Jones, Helias’ president. “We are thankful for all Coach Rulo has done for Helias.”

The school begin the search for a new head football coach on Monday.

In his three seasons at Helias, Rulo had a record of 12-15 in the regular season. This past year, the Crusaders went 4-5 in the regular season. They lost in the class four district seven championship game to Moberly, 35-21.

Before Rulo got to Helias, he spent seven seasons coaching football at South Callaway. He had a 66-19 record as the head coach of the Bulldogs.
