Falmouth High football coach Morency quits for more family time


There was no doubt which high school football team was the best on Cape Cod this fall.

Falmouth won the Cape and Islands League title, beat Barnstable on Thanksgiving and posted a region-best 8-2 record. But next season, the Clippers will have a new coach. Joe Morency quit to spend more time with his family. Morency and his wife, Julie, have two young children, Thomas and Reilly.

“It’s really tough with two little kids and for me coaching football is a year-round commitment with bodybuilding, keeping the kids around, keeping them involved,” Morency said. “Unfortunately, I just didn’t think I could dedicate the time needed to continue developing the program where I wanted.”

Morency has spent much of his life participating in Falmouth’s football program. He played at Falmouth before graduating in 2005 and continuing his football career at Bridgewater State University. After graduating from college, he returned to the coaching staff under Dana and Derek Almeida and Steve Femino.

In 2020, Morency was named interim Clippers coach before the season, which was a five-game season played in February-April 2021 due to COVID-19. Morency lost the interim title and coached Falmouth for three seasons, posting a 15-10 record. The Clippers were 2-9 in 2019, the year before he took over.

“Honestly, it was awesome,” Morency said of his time as head coach. “I always wanted the opportunity to be a head coach and luckily I had the opportunity to do so.”
