After two years as head coach of the Southwest High School football team, Brian Hay has accepted the head coaching job at Hilltop High School in Chula Vista.
Hay turned in his resignation to the Southwest administration Monday and will take over coaching duties at Hilltop when the school year ends.
"It took me awhile to make my decision, but there were basically three main reasons I ended up taking this job," said the 31-year-old Hay. "One, I wanted to be close to my family. And it's in the direction where me and my wife want to live the rest of our lives. And also, my mom's been having health problems and I want to be close to her. As soon as the problems with my mom came up … that pretty much swayed my decision."
Hay will inherit a San Diego Section Division II team that went 2-8 overall last year and 0-4 in the South Bay League.
