Willig Out at Pioneer After Eight Years

By Tim Peterson

(Whittier) – Chuck Willig has stepped down as the head football coach at Pioneer after an eight year run. The opening for a new coach has been posted on the CIFSS website.

Willig had an overall record of 27-53 during his eight-year tenure and the Titans never made the playoffs. Willig’s best year was 2015 when Pioneer finished 7-3 overall but went 2-3 in the Del Rio League and failed to make the post season.

The Titans competed in the Del Rio until 2018 before moving over to the newly formed 605 League. Pioneer went 5-5 this past season and 1-2 in the 605 which was good for third place in the four-team league.

Pioneer will begin the search for a new head coach immediately.

    We can see now that Pioneer wouldn’t have made this move were it not for confirmation from Margarito Beltran that he’ll come and revive their moribund program. The situation would seem to be perfect: the big man is an alum, he has area youth team connections, and the only expectation weighing upon him is the need to improve on Willig’s 27-53 record.
