Bonita’s Podley resigns as head football coach

After 12 years at the helm, Bonita head football coach Eric Podley will step down… but not very far. According to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune’s story special teams coordinator Adrian Medrano will take over as head coach and Podley will be his offensive coordinator.

Podley led the team to two league titles, nine playoff appearances and the CIF-SS Southeast Division championship game two seasons ago where the Bearcats lost a game for the ages, 37-33, to West Covina. Bonita’s long time head coach struggled with a health issue last season, an infection that caused him to drop a large amount of weight, that played a large role in his decision.
