SACRAMENTO, CA – Nevada Union coaching legend Dave Humphers is stepping down as varsity head football coach of the Miners after 21 years.
The Sacramento Bee was first to report that Humphers would step down after notching 195 games, 10 league and six City Championships and four Sac-Joaquin Section Division I titles.
In a letter of resignation to Grass Valley’s Nevada Union High School, Humphers said a time for a change had come.
“I am the most fortunate man on Earth for the family I love,” said Humphers. “It is time to focus more on family, to watch my sons play college football, to watch dance performances and girls basketball and to support my wife (Dorene).”
His sons, Gabe and Hank played the last two seasons under their father.
Humphers has been the head coach of the Miners since 1991.
