Cameron Higgins stepped down as the Kaiser football head coach recently, according to trusted Hawaii Prep World and Honolulu Star-Advertiser sources.
The Cougars have been without a head coach this spring and the school has not posted the opening yet, according to the sources.
Richard Torres, an assistant under Higgins, has been running spring drills and workouts. It’s unknown whether Torres will be a candidate for the open position.
Kaiser went 4-5 (4-3 Oahu Interscholastic Association Red) under Higgins last fall and were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs in a 27-21 loss to Campbell.
Higgins went 9-9 in his two seasons at the helm after he took over for Rich Miano to start the 2014 season. He was 1-2 in the playoffs.
Higgins’ biggest victory with the Cougars came in the fifth game of 2014, a 20-19 home upset of Kahuku.
According to sources, Higgins’ reason for leaving the post is to concentrate more fully on his career in real estate and property development.
Kaiser principal Justin Mew did not return a phone call seeking comment on Higgins’ departure and a search for a new coach.
