Peck resigns as Jefferson football coach

Dean Peck met with his Jefferson High School football players late this morning to them he was stepping down as head football coach after six seasons.

“The main reason is to take a break from all of the things that go with being a head coach,” he wrote in an e-mail. “Spend some time with my family, spend some time doing those things I have not been able to do the last 6 years, some of them for the last 13 years.

“I do feel I accomplished the goal I took on when I took the job at TJ, turn the program around.”

Peck, who previously coached for seven years at Riverside High School in Boardman, Ore., took the Raiders to the playoffs for the first time in school history in 2011 and this year’s team also qualified. Jefferson finished 5-5 in both of those seasons, losing in the round of 32.
