Jason Martin Resigns at Duarte
Jason Martin has stepped down as head football coach at Duarte High School after two seasons.
Martin led the Falcons to a 7-5 record in 2013, and their first playoff appearance and victory since 2008. Combined Martin went 12-10 overall (5-5 in 2012) guiding the program.
“I have numerous colleges that are willing to give me a shot, so I don’t want this window of opportunity to close,” said Martin on Saturday afternoon. “I’m in the process of making my decision on where I will coach. I have a tremendous amount of respect for the DUSD, our administration, and the athletic department so I wanted to give them as much time as possible to hire a new coach and make a smooth transition.”
Martin, who attended both Monrovia and Muir High Schools, will finish the school year teaching at Duarte.
