Jim Brownfield, who coached John Muir High School to national prominence in the 1980s and 90s, died Monday. He was 81. The two-time national coach of the year spent 16 years at Muir – from 1980-1996 – compiling a 191-14-1 record, 22 league titles and six CIF championships. Under Brownfield, Muir won two CIF-Southern Section football titles in 1985 and 1986. He led the girls Mustangs track team to four CIF-SS track tiles and two CIF State tiles in 1985 and 1989.
