Joel Sanchez resigned today as the head football coach at El Monte High School.
“It was a fun ride,” says Sanchez. “I am grateful to have coached here at El Monte and make a difference in a lot of kids lives.”
Sanchez, who played college football at APU and is an EMHS alum, led the Lions for 13 seasons and five playoff appearances in the last eight years. El Monte shared a Mission Valley League title in 2012, it’s first since 1979.
“Coaching here at my alma mater was always my dream and it was something special.”
