Great Oak High School Head Varsity Football coach Robbie Robinson has officially tendered his resignation as head coach to school administration, according to a press release distributed by the Temecula Valley Unified School District on Wednesday, Nov. 7.

Robinson has been the Head Varsity Football coach since the 2009 season, taking over the school's first-ever head coach, Scott Strosnider, following a lengthy coaching stint at Chapparal High School that saw the Pumas reach the CIFSS title game twice. Prior to that, Robinson had a hand in five section titles while part of the staff at Vista High School.

During his time at Great Oak, the Wolfpack made the playoffs seven times, including a CIF Southern Section semifinal appearance in 2014.

"After 10 seasons, I am stepping down as the Head Football Coach at Great Oak High School," Robinson said in a statement. "I would like to thank all my players and coaches over the last 10 years for all of the hard work and effort that they have put into building the program. It has truly been a blessing to work with such a group of talented, amazing people. Finally, I want to thank the staff at Great Oak for their support of both the program and myself. I would like to especially thank my wife Cindy and my kids for all their support over the years. I look forward to what the next phase of my life brings me."

Great Oak High School Principal Aimee Ricken thanked Robinson for his work at Great Oak.

"We are incredibly thankful for the impact Coach Robinson has had on our program and our school," Ricken said in the release. "Robbie has tremendous integrity and he has worked tirelessly to prepare our student-athletes to be successful. The legacy Robbie leaves behind provides a solid foundation for the continued success of Great Oak football. We wish Robbie and Cindy all the best."

Great Oak High School Athletic Director Herschel Ramirez thanked Robinson for his passion and hard work in the statement.

"Coach Robinson will forever be linked to the growth and proud tradition of Great Oak football," Ramirez said. "I am thankful for the class, respect, and passion that Robbie has exemplified in the Southwestern League all these years. His selfless leadership, hard work, and commitment to our school community will be greatly missed as head coach."
