Jim Arellanes resigned as varsity football head coach at Marshall on Tuesday to become assistant principal at Duarte.
No word yet on who will replace Arellanes at Marshall as the job is being flown on the CIF-Southern Section website.
Arellanes was 6-14 in his two seasons at Marshall. Prior to that, he was briefly the head coach at Los Altos and before that the head coach at Northview.
Arellanes was a standout quarterback at El Rancho in the early 1990s before later playing at Fresno St. and then overseas in NFL Europe.
Arellanes’ departure leaves Marshall in a lurch with its first game mere weeks away on Aug. 29 against West Adams. Marshall will also play its first season in the Mission Valley League later this fall.
