HS Football: Vista Murrieta Football Coach David Olson asked to Step Down

The Bronco Head Coach is Out after a Disappointing Season and a 4-7 Record

Vista Murrieta High School Principal Mick Wager announced today that the school will seek a new head football coach to replace David Olson, who has served as the head football coach since February, 2016.

Olson will continue to teach AP Government at Vista Murrieta Valley High School.

Principal Mick Wager said, “I respect David’s passion for the game and I am grateful for his efforts and commitment to his players and the program. However, at this point, we believe it is in the best interest of the program to seek a change in leadership for the football program.”

Olson’s record as Head Coach was 13-10 in the 2 years he as at the helm. His Broncos had a 9-3 record in his first year, but fell on hard times this season. Vista Murrieta finished the 2017 season with their worst record in over a decade at 4-7. The Broncos however, had one of the toughest non-league schedules in the Inland Empire this year.

Vista Murrieta lost the Southwestern League Title to Murrieta Valley for the second year in a row…and then lost to Great Oak to take third place in league this year. The Broncos were then eliminated by Mater Dei in the CIF Southern Section Playoffs.

The district’s Assistant Superintendent of Human Recourses Darren Daniel said, “We expect to see a highly competitive pool of candidates for this exciting opportunity.
