Posted 02/08/2016 by Andrew Skari

Head Football Coach Jesus Escobedo announced his decision to step down during a team meeting last Thursday.

Coach Escobedo made this difficult decision due to health concerns and advice from his doctor. He thanked everyone for their hard work and commitment to the Spartan family. He continued to say he was incredibly proud to have been their coach but that it was time to focus on his health and spend more time with his family.

The faculty, staff and administration would like to thank Coach Escobedo and his staff for their hard work and commitment to the students of Thomas Jefferson over the past three and a half years.

Thomas Jefferson High School has begun a search for a new Head Football Coach. All those interested in the position should email a cover letter, resume and any other related information to the Athletic Director: A search committee made up of coaches, faculty and alumni will evaluate all interested candidates and choose those who will move forward to the initial round of interviews.
