Another Football Coaching Change Is Made at Muir

October 06, 1994|ERIC SHEPARD

Pasadena Muir High, annually one of the Southland's top schools for football talent, made an abrupt coaching change on Wednesday.

Jack Allen, in his second year as head coach, was relieved of his duties and replaced by former assistant Mike Harrison. Harrison, who has never been a high school head football coach, will serve on an interim basis.

Muir, rated high in several preseason polls, is 2-2. It was 8-3 under Allen last season.

Gary Talbert, Muir's principal, said he met Monday with between 15 and 20 varsity players who expressed varying concerns about the team. Many of those players suggested Jim Brownfield, who coached the school to a pair of Southern Section championships in the 1980s, be brought back. Brownfield coaches girls' track at the school.

Harrison is Muir's eighth coach since 1987.
