(Pasadena) – Doug Bledsoe stepped down as the head coach at Pasadena Thursday multiple sources confirmed. 

The Bulldogs went 5-5 overall (3-4 in the Pacific League) last year including a 13-6 win over rival Muir in the Turkey Tussle. It was Pasadena’s first win over Muir since 1995.

Bledsoe, who stepped down for personal reasons, went 10-20 in three years at the helm. He took over for Randy Horton following the 2012 season.

    I hate the fact the Psadena public schools (Muir and Pasadena) have had such a carousel of coaches. Those jobs have become revolving doors. It’s a very tough city to coach because the higher ups don’t have the best interest of the kids and it starts with the segregated classism of the city of Pasadena. These schools should dominate! These coaches seem to burn out or get swallowed up by their own community who should be supporting them. There is no excuse for Pasadena and Muir to not be public school powerhouses. An Oliva, White, Medrano, or Ziola would be great for those schools and maybe even Brown after he gets a few more years of coaching under his belt. Good luck Pasadena and best wishes Coach Bledsoe

    Coach Bled is tired of dealing with all those knuckle heads. Sad part is most the problems are graduating seniors and will be gone next year. Too bad. Good luck coach.
