He released the following statement this afternoon ...
“My family and I are grateful to God to have had the opportunity to work at Santa Margarita High School. We have loved living in the Rancho Santa Margarita community since we moved our home here in 2014.
"Our players and staff were great to work with and I want to thank them for their dedication and hard work. While the time was short, we are proud of our ethical standards, the progress we made in all areas of the football program, and how we honored God in doing so. I also want to thank the parents that supported me and I wish the players great success in moving forward.
"We feel confident that God has another plan for us, as it has been evident that the new president at SMCHS wants to move in a different direction for the football program. We are excited for what God has in store for our future.”
