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.
