Rob VanDeusen was fired as Mission San Jose High football coach on Tuesday, vice principal Zack Larsen and athletic director Tom Thomsen confirmed.
Neither person would speak of the reasons for the firing. VanDeusen declined to comment when he was reached by phone.
Jason Cain, one of the team’s varsity assistants, will take over as interim head coach for the remainder of the season, beginning with Friday’s game at Newark Memorial at 7 p.m.
VanDeusen is still a teacher at the school, Larsen said.
“Today we met with all of the students to introduce their new head coach,” Larsen said. “The kids are looking forward to having as strong a finish as possible.”
The Warriors are 2-5 overall and 0-3 in the Mission Valley Athletic League. They’ve lost 37 straight MVAL games since their last league win in 2005.
