Bowdey steps down as Arroyo Grande boys coach

Brad Bowdey has retired after nine years coaching the Eagles boys soccer team.

He said the decision came down to a number of factors, including the desire to spend more time with family.

“I also feel as though this program has grown to be one of the best in the area,” he wrote in an email, “and it is now time for a new voice with a coach who can build upon this with the great talent that is here.”
