John Wade has stepped down as the Miramonte High football coach, becoming the second high-profile coach in as many weeks to step down. In a phone interview with reporter Ben Enos, Wade said his decision was primarily based upon the hope of spending more time with his daughters.

Wade tentatively has plans to help out with the Chabot JC coaching staff, but should not be ruled out of a head coaching job in the Tri-Valley area. He lives in San Ramon and was recently a finalist for the California vacancy. He did not express interest either way in the opening at San Ramon Valley, created when Dave Kravitz resigned late last week.

  • WaitWhat??

    Class act and a very good coach. Not much time to hire an outsider at either Miramonte or SRV with these late departures.

    Like I said he I heard he had interest in the Cal high Job. My report confirmed. Not to go back to this Cal high Coaching stuff cuz I really am sick of it but how could they not hire this guy? Brutal. NCS championship & another NCS finals ain’t good enough for Cal High.

    Coach Wade is a hell of a Coach & a winner. Good luck to him. I heard that it was the same situtation as the former Coach at Y.V. went played there, coached there & just needed a change.

    Early word is that Jack Schram former Head Coach for 16 years at Encinal will get offered the job since its so late. He’s been on Wade’s staff for the last 3 years.

    Hopefully they can promote from within so that not too many changes will take place.

    A blow for Miramonte’s varsity squad – I don’t know how next year’s seniors are – I kow they had a few good jrs this year during their title run. Miramonte’s jv was only .500, but their frosh team went undefeated in league play. Word in school was that wade was pulling up 5 or 6 kids off the frosh team, including the qb, to the varsity for next year.

    Campolindo won’t be a factor in next years run for DFAL league champs. They have very few players returning, the only mentionable ones would be QB Tommy Stephens and WR Michael Hoffman.

    Did Coach Wade officially return to Miramonte as the rumor states?

  • http://insidebayarea.com ROEPER

    Wade is officially back. I heard some of it had to do with the tragedy that happened over the weekend. Don’t know how the 2 innertwine but I guess they wanted to keep a stable staff & not bring too much change when Wade resinded his resignation.

    Campo will be a factor for the league. Having a 3rd year starter at QB is almost unfair. I think that kid will be top 2 in the bay. All he’s done is win NCS Semi’s the last 2 years. Plus Macy is a hell of a coach. In my opinion the best in that league. Soundest 5-2 in the valley & offensively he can always throw & pass. Gotta do both too win in the play-offs. Miramonte probably has the most talent coming back don’t know how they’ll be after all this stuff. Flat out couldn’t run the ball in the play-offs. Las Lomas has a returning QB but losing too much talent.
