Nordhoff High School principal Greg Bayless announced Monday the school’s head varsity football coach, Erik Monson, has resigned effective immediately.
School officials will begin the process of hiring a new coach right away and Bayless indicated he hopes to have a new football coach in place by December.
Bayless said the Monson's status as a teacher has not been decided and will ultimately be determined by Ojai Unified School Superintendent Hank Bangser.
