(Pasadena) – La Salle head football coach Russell Gordon has stepped down after six seasons to take an assistant coach position at Antelope Valley College.
La Salle, which finished 1-9 the year before Gordon took over, went 10-1 in Gordon’s first year in 2012 but lost in the first round of the playoffs. The Lancers went 36-28 overall during Gordon’s six year run and went to the playoffs three times. In 2016 La Salle went to the second round of the playoffs and finished 7-5 overall. This past season La Salle finished 3-7 and fifth place in the Angelus League.
La Salle will begin the search for a new coach immediately.
