Mike Olson said he stepped down as football coach at Scottsdale Coronado.
He said he isn’t pursuing the head coaching job at Phoenix Arcadia. But he’ll be a reference guy with his strong ties to the school, where his son played football.
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.
