On February 17, Santa Rosa Head Football Coach Tony Keefer resigned from head coaching duties for personal reasons.

Keefer was 2-8 in his one season as Santa Rosa’s coach. Before coming to the Panthers, Keefer was coach of Tamalpais.   At the start of 2007 in his first year as coach at Tamalpais he posted a 0-10 record and left at the end of the 2008 season to coach Santa Rosa.

This will be the second year that Santa Rosa is in the off season without a coach.  The coaching position has been posted, and the applicants will likely begin the interview process next month.
