Metcalf steps down as Renton football coach

Terry Metcalf has resigned as head football coach at Renton after eight seasons.

Metcalf, a 1969 Franklin High School graduate who enjoyed a nine-year career in the NFL and CFL as a running back, has not returned phone calls from The Times today. He also has left his position as security officer at the school, according to Randy Matheson, spokesman for the Renton School District. The resignations were effective last week, Matheson said.

“He performed as a football coach admirably and he decided to move on and find other things to do,” Matheson said.

The Indians were 37-28 under Metcalf, finishing 6-4 this past season with a loss to Meadowdale in the preliminary playoffs.

Matheson said the district will post the coaching position within the next few weeks and should name a successor by early spring.
