Coronado Athletic Director Dave Huffine said that Olson will “still do a lot of things here on campus.”

Olson called the Coronado job “fun but a grueling three years.”

Coronado went 5-5 last season. In his three years, the Dons went 16-12. His best season was 2015 when the Dons went 7-3 and just missed out making the Division IV state playoffs.
