Carpinteria High football head coach Mario Robinson is resigning from his post at the helm of the Warriors’ program.

“From day one to this, Coach Robinson has served with passion and a plan,” Carpinteria athletic director Pat Cooney said. “He and his teams met head-on the challenges of inheriting a program in a rebuilding phase, navigated the longest football season ever under COVID, returned to football activity with strict protocols and played competitive contests within the CIF-SS and the Citrus Coast League.”

Robinson was hired by Carpinteria in 2019 and has been the head coach for all five seasons since. During that time, the Warriors accumulated a record of 8-33.

Before his time at Carpinteria, Robinson coached at multiple different high schools, including Channel Islands, Hueneme and Pacific.

Even earlier than that, he was involved in the Carpinteria community as the head coach of the Boys and Girls Club’s Senior Division team. He led them to a Youth Football League Super Bowl in 1998.

“The Warriors have come full circle as the program enters the next rebuilding phase,” Cooney said. “It starts at the top and the search for a new head football coach begins immediately.”

The Carpinteria head coaching position is currently open and will be posted by the Carpinteria Unified School District on
