Kalaheo High School is accepting applications for its head football coaching position after announcing that Darrell Poole has retired after eight seasons in charge of the Mustangs program.
“Darrell Poole has retired from coaching football at Kalaheo after 7 years as the Head Varsity Football Coach and many years being part of the Mustang Ohana,” the school said in a press release. “Kalaheo would like to thank Coach Poole for all his years of service to our student athletes.”
Poole went 18-54 in his eight seasons as head coach including an 0-10 run this past year while playing in Division II in the OIA. The Mustangs made the OIA D-II playoffs in his first season when they finished 5-5 overall, marking the only time they finished .500 or better.
Kalaheo finished one game out of the playoffs in 2018.
Poole played running back in high school at Waianae and went on to play for the Marine Corps. He was featured as part of our 2019 Glory Days series detailing the playing days of all Hawaii high school football coaches.
The deadline for interested applicants to apply for the vacancy is Friday, Feb. 14. Resumes can be emailed to Kalaheo athletic director Mark Brilhante (firstname.lastname@example.org) or mailed to the school.
