The Bulletin’s Clay Fowler reports that Matt Bechtel resigned on Tuesday after two seasons as Colony High School’s head football coach, according to Colony athletic director Jaime Sandoval. Bechtel went 18-6 in his first two seasons as a head coach, leading the Titans to a Mt. Baldy League championship last season before reaching the CIF-SS Central Division semifinals.
“I think some other opportunities have been out there for him, particularly in the last two or three months,” Sandoval said. “I think it was a tough decision for him to leave considering he came in with such a vision for this program and the amount of work he put into it. But ultimately I think he needed to look at those other opportunities.”
