Adam Colman steps down as head coach of the Burbank High School Football Program
After another losing season where the Burbank Bulldogs finished with a 3-7 overall record and a record of 1-4 in Pacific League play, Adam Colman stepped down as head coach of the football program after 7 seasons at the helm. Colman guided the Bulldogs to 3 playoff appearances and one Pacific League Title in his first season. That season, 2017, he also guided them to the CIF Southern Section Division 7 Semi-Finals which resulted in a loss to Don Lugo. He is currently a math teacher at Burbank High School but was once a quarterback for the school and was a graduate of Burbank High in 2011. The new head coach will be tasked to get the Bulldogs back to their winning ways as next year’s varsity team will be headlined by a number of returners such as seniors, Daniel Zacariaz (quarterback), Joseph Caballero (running back), Max Kelley (running back/wide receiver/defensive back) Ezekiel Alvarez (wide receivers/defensive back) and Sebastian Mirzakanian (offensive lineman).
The search will begin immediately as Athletic Director Allison McKain will be involved in the search along with the Assistant Principal of Athletics and Activities John Wells, and School Principal Julie Markusen. “I fully support Coach Colman’s decision to step down as head coach of the Burbank High School football program. It was best for him to put his health and family first,” said Burbank High Athletic Director Allison McKain. She mentions that the school will be selective on who they choose to take over the program as they will look for someone who represents pride and excellence when asked about the specifics of what Burbank High School is looking for in its next head football coach. A decision on who will be the next head coach of the Burbank High Football Program will hopefully be made before the 1st semester ends in order to allow the new coach maximum opportunity to succeed as the head of the program.
