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.
