Gavin Pachot has stepped down as head football coach at Rialto, saying, “I really feel like. the direction I was moving with the football team was not the same as the administration.”
In four seasons as head coach at Rialto, Pachot, a 1989 Fontana grad, was 24-20 with three playoff appearances. Prior to Pachot becoming the head coach, Rialto was 11-69 in the previous eight seasons. He said he plans on coaching next season and in fact was scheduled to be interviewed for the Summit head coaching job on Wednesday.
