Rosemead’s open! Marc Paramo steps down as head coach after five seasons …

Another of the area’s top football coaching jobs is open. Marc Paramo announced Tuesday that he has resigned as Rosemead High School football coach after seasons.

Paramo took over for former coach Matt Koffler in 2012 and won a Mission Valley League championship in 2014. The Panthers made the playoffs in three of Paramo’s five seasons and were 26-28 during that time. Prior to that, Paramo was a top assistant under Koffler.

“I’m 40 years old and I don’t want to do it by myself anymore,” Paramo said. “I’ve been coaching for 21 years, 17 of it at Rosemead and the last five as head coach. I just want some professional life, too. I started my administrative credential in 2008 and we went on our playoff run that year, so I stopped.

“I’m already seven weeks into my course at APU, so I went back.”

Paramo said he’s considering coaching elsewhere as an assistant this season, but also may take a year off to get recharged.

“Honestly, I wouldn’t mind coaching under someone else and learning,” Paramo said. “I wouldn’t mind being a position coach somewhere and just getting to learn how someone else does it and how they work with parents and staff members. I just don’t want to deal with the head coaching headache.”

Rosemead now joins Los Altos and South Pasadena in looking for a new head coach. Earlier this offseason, West Covina and La Mirada also had coaching vacancies to fill.
