District spokeswoman Jessica Cardoza said the coaching job was opened up to district employees following Matt Loggins’ June 6 resignation from the position.
The next week, Loggins accepted a position as athletic director at Clovis West High School near Fresno.
Cardoza said the district would not say how many, if any, local candidates applied for the job, but she confirmed that there have been no qualified candidates. She said someone within Tracy Unified could still apply for the Kimball job.
As of June 25, the job is posted on www.edjoin.org, along with a posting for a physical education teacher and other teaching and coaching jobs at Kimball and West high schools.
Even without a head coach, Jaguar football players and assistant coaches are practicing and working out in preparation for a team camp July 15, 16 and 17 at West High.
Senior wide receiver and defensive back Damon Jackson said the Jaguars are moving through their summer workouts as they normally would.
“We’ve been doing a lot of team building, so we’re all connected and working as a team,” he said.
Jerrod Teyshak, offensive coordinator for the Jaguars, worked alongside Loggins for three years at West High and joined him on the move to Kimball this year.
Teyshak said the rest of the coaching staff is working with about 60 players, both varsity and junior varsity, during summer workouts.
”Matt Loggins put together a pretty good staff of quality guys who care about kids and care about football,” Teyshak said. “We’re just working hard. We’re doing fine.”
