A Lubbock ISD football coach will step down from his position.

Coach Todd Pearson, the head football coach at Monterey High School has announced that he will resign his position as coach and athletic coordinator for Monterey High School.

Pearson began as head football coach at Monterey High School in 2009 after serving as an assistant coach at MHS for seven years.

“I am very proud of the programs at Monterey, and have been blessed to work with many great athletes and coaches,” said Pearson. “My sincere appreciation goes to the parents, students, and the Lubbock Independent School District for giving me the opportunity to lead Plainsmen Athletics.”

LISD Executive Director of Athletics Mark Ball weighed in, saying “Coach Pearson is a man of integrity and character. His dealings with players, coaching staff, and game officials are always professional and courteous.”

Pearson led the MHS football team to the playoffs for four of the past five football seasons.

Ball continued, saying “…but more importantly, he has been a positive role model for his student athletes and prepared them for living a life of character.”
