Randy Horton has resigned as varsity football head coach at Pasadena after three seasons.
Horton went 11-21 in this three seasons, including a 1-9 record this season. His best season came in 2011 when Pasadena went 6-6 and won a playoff game.
“It’s time for me to move on to another level,” Horton said late Monday. “I want to go back to college.”
Horton was an assistant strength and conditioning coach in charge of all speed and agility drills at UCLA in 2007. He played corner back and free safety at Oregon State. Horton later played in the Canadian Football League with the Toronto Argonauts.
Much of the Bulldogs’ struggles this season came due to injuries, most notably one to Utah-bound quarterback Brandon Cox, who missed most of the season with an injured foot.
Aram’s take: Tough luck for Horton this season not having Cox. It’s hard to tell what will become of PHS’s program. La Salle is gaining steam, Muir has stabilised with John Hardy at the helm and Alemany (among others) continues to pillage the talent-rich city for all it’s worth.
