High school will have new football coach

After four seasons as the head varsity football coach at Coast Union, David Clements will not be back in the same capacity next year, a school official confirmed Sunday, Nov. 22.

“We’ve just decided to go in a different direction with the football program for the future,” Broncos athletic director Bill Clough said.

The decision comes just two weeks after Coast Union ended a 1-9 campaign, the worst under Clements since he arrived in Cambria in 2006. His overall record stands at 16-26 — just 3-17 in the past two seasons — but Clements did take the Broncos to the playoffs in each of his first two years.

Clements will remain a full-time English teacher at the school. Clough said there is no timetable yet for getting a new coach in place for the Central Section Division V program, which saw its participation dwindle so much this season that it failed to field a junior varsity team.
