West Ranch football head coach Sean O’Brien has resigned his position at the Stevenson Ranch high school, West Ranch athletic director Cassandra Perez confirmed to The Signal on Tuesday.

“We’re really sad to be losing such a tremendous coach,” Perez said. “Not only is he a great coach, but a phenomenal person and someone that all students can look up to.”

According to Perez, O’Brien will continue to oversee the program until the end of the semester.

“He wants to be more present with his kids. It was a bit of a shock,” Perez said. “We’ve been talking about schedules for next season. But we fully support him, and we’ve got to put family first and West Ranch understands that.”

It is possible a current member of the staff could be promoted to the head coaching position, but “we have not discussed anything at this point,” Perez said.

O’Brien will continue to teach English at the school.

During his four seasons as head coach of the Wildcats, he had a combined 18-23 record.

The Wildcats finished the 2012 season in fifth place in the Foothill League with a record of 2-8 overall and 1-5 in Foothill League play.

O’Brien led the Wildcats to their most successful season in school history in 2010, finishing third in the Foothill League with a 6-5 overall, 3-2 Foothill League record.
