After five years and four Nevada state high school football championships, Kenny Sanchez is no longer Bishop Gorman’s head football coach. Sanchez, who led the Gaels to the 2016 High School Football America “mythical” national championship, resigned on Wednesday.

Gorman’s streak of ten straight Nevada high school football state titles ended when Liberty beat the Gaels 30-24 in overtime in the state semifinals. Prior to that loss, Gorman had won 115 straight against in-state opponents.

In a statement released by the school, Sanchez said, “I am grateful for all the opportunities Bishop Gorman has given me over the years and proud of what we accomplished as a program. I wish to thank everyone who helped us create such a special legacy, especially the assistant coaches and players. I would also like to thank the administration, staff, alumni and the entire Bishop Gorman community.

“Lastly, none of it would have been possible without the support of my family. It is best at this time for me to step away while I consider other opportunities.”

Sanchez was 65-8 since taking-over the program in 2015.

Until is a new head coach is hired, assistant coaches will run the team’s off-season workouts.
