PREP FOOTBALL: Kemmis resigns after five seasons at Linfield
By The Californian 9:51 p.m.April 8, 2011
Linfield Christian football coach Jimmy Kemmis has resigned from that post, athletic director Drake Charles said, barely 16 months after he led the Lions to their first CIF Southern Section championship.
Kemmis, a Linfield grad, leaves the program after a 40-20 record in five seasons. In 2009, Kemmis led Linfield to a 14-0 record and the only section championship in school history with a 9-6 victory over Arcadia Rio Hondo Prep in the Northeast Division final on a mud-soaked Covina District Stadium field.
Kemmis said he resigned because his position as the Assistant Director of Student Life was eliminated.
"I definitely wanted to be at Linfield for another 20 years," Kemmis said by phone late Friday night. "But when it became obvious the position wouldn't be there I felt like I had to pull the trigger and resign."
Kemmis added: "It's not what I wanted. But it is best for the boys involved."
In a statement, Linfield athletic director Drake Charles wrote that he received Kemmis' resignation on Tuesday.
"He has left a permanent imprint on the hearts, mind and souls of the many young men who will forever call him, 'Coach Kemmis,'" Charles wrote. "These are the trophies that count, the ones that last forever."
Reached later by phone, Charles said "We will miss Jimmy Kemmis tremendously."
Charles did not give a timetable for hiring a replacement in his statement or by phone but said that replacing Kemmis was on the top of his list.
"It's obviously a high priority to replace him," Charles said.
Kemmis became the sixth high school football coach to resign in Southwest Riverside County. Along with Kemmis, Dennis Gregovich of Hamilton, Tom Leach of Chaparral, Jason Thornburg at West Valley, Mike Schroeder of Tahquitz and Trevor Watters of Lakeside have all departed since the end of the 2010 season.
