Tim Pike steps down at Fohi coach

Tim Pike, who stepped up last year to be Fontana’s football coach in a time of need, has stepped down.
Pike, 61, is retiring from teaching after more than 20 years in the district and nearly four decades overall teaching. Pike resigned, with the hopes that a younger coach could get a teaching job at Fontana and take over the program. In the meantime, Pike will continue to run the offseason conditioning and weightlifting programs.
A year ago, Fontana had a tough time finding a candidate who would be an on-campus teacher so Pike stepped up. Fontana went 1-9, with the lone win via forfeit over Granite Hills. Pike, who became the interim coach one game into the 2005 season after Joe Kramer left, had also served as an assistant at Big Bear, Miller and Citrus Valley.
