Joe Cronin has resigned as head football coach after two successful seasons at Cascade High School, due to family circumstances.
According to athletic director Robert Polk, Cronin is electing to spend more time at home after his daughter was recently born two months premature and is currently in the neonatal intensive care unit at the University of Washington.
Cascade was mired in a 23-game losing streak when Cronin took over the program. The Bruins snapped it with a 20-12 victory over Shorweood to start the 2012 campaign and finished 5-5. They went 9-2 last season, beating Auburn Riverside in a preliminary playoff game to earn a state berth for the first time since 2007.
Polk said current assistant coach Eric Dinwiddie will serve as interim head coach for the 2014 season and the search for a permanent head coach will begin this fall.
