(Azusa) – Robert Beltran has stepped down as the head football coach at Azusa multiple sources confirmed Monday.
Beltran took over for Joe Scherf after the 2015 season and had an overall record of 15-18 in three years. He led the Aztecs to a 6-6 mark in 2016 and into the second round of the CIF Division 13 playoffs. Azusa beat Carnegie in the first round before falling to Santa Ana in the round two.
The Aztecs went 5-6 in 2017 and lost to Rio Hondo Prep 42-22 in the first round. Last season Azusa was 4-6 overall and third place in the Montview League and missed the playoffs.
No specific reason was given at this time for Beltran’s departure.
Azusa will begin the search for a new head coach immediately.
