Football: Horton takes over as new Pasadena coach

By Keith Lair, Staff Writer

Expect the Pasadena High School football team to be fast this fall.

It’s what Randy Horton knows and expects and what he said the Bulldogs have been working on all spring. Horton was approved to coach the football team by the Pasadena Unified School District last month.

He replaces Mike McFarland, who went 5-5 in his only year with the Bulldogs. McFarland has taken over at Temple City. Horton was an assistant coach at Temple City last season under Anthony White, who was with the Rams for only one season.

“We’re going to be up-tempo,” Horton said. “We’re treating this like a college program because we want the kids to get used to that.”

Horton was the speed coach for former UCLA coach DeWayne Walker. The 40-year-old has also been a personal trainer for NFL players and those who have participated in the NFL combine. Some of the players he has worked with include Arizona defensive back Matt Ware and St. Louis linebacker K.C. Asiodu.

This will be the first time he has been a head coach. After Walker, who coached Horton at Mt. SAC, left UCLA in 2007, Horton became the defensive coordinator at Pasadena in ’08 and then was the strength and conditioning coach at Temple City last season. He also was an assistant coach at Pasadena in ’05 and ’06. He was a finalist for the Pasadena position when McFarland got the job.
