As Jimmy mentioned in a comment a few minutes ago, Ygnacio Valley football coach Chris Turner has indeed resigned. Here’s what I wrote for tomorrow’s paper.
Ygnacio Valley coach Chris Turner resigned from his position as head football coach on Tuesday, citing the need to focus on supporting his family after being passed over for an on-campus job as a site supervisor.
“I thought I was going to have a position on campus and did the position for two months,” Turner said. “I did the interview and was confident it would be a done deal and right before spring break they told me they were going to hire someone else.”
The Warriors went 9-3 in Turner’s lone season at the helm, winning a co-Diablo Valley Athletic League championship along the way. Turner said he didn’t know whether he would coach in any capacity next season, saying his primary focus will be on finding a full-time job.
“I can’t say enough about the group of kids there,” Turner said. “I love the kids and that’s what made it so hard.”
