In what seems like a surprise, longtime Burroughs High football coach has resigned his position. Knoop, who just completed his 19th season at the helm, announced his decision via Twitter:

It read: “Want to say thank you to everyone I have meet [met] who has made my coaching stint at John Burroughs great. I have stepped down as head coach.”

Knoop’s team came off a wildly successful season in which it went 9-1 during the regular season and 7-0 in Pacific League play. This was the first time since 2006 that the Indians (10-2) reached these figures.

Knoop, who has coached for 29 years, also picked up his 100th career win this season, which ended with a 21-7 loss to St. Francis in the CIF Southern Section Southeast Division quarterfinals.

No one has been named to succeed Knoop, who captured five Pacific League titles during his tenure.
