Fremont High boys basketball coach Frank Knight, who spent 10 years coaching at his alma mater, resigned Monday to pursue other coaching opportunities.
Knight led the Tigers to the 1995 California Interscholastic Federation state championship game as a player before playing at Saint Mary’s College. He started his coaching career as an assistant at De La Salle before heading the program at Fremont for a decade.
“The best part was the kids that I got to help who were sitting in the same position I was a student,” Knight said. “Just those kids that you get and you see the potential in them, and you just get to help them along the way.”
Knight will resign his teaching and athletic director positions at the end of the school year and will also head the search for a new coach as part of a committee.
“It’s tough to walk away from it but I’m looking forward to new challenges,” Knight said.
