COVINA – South Hills High School head football coach, Danilo Robinson, resigned his coaching position today. Robinson saw the team through the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, charting a course to keep players safe while returning them to the field.
“Coach Robinson was key in keeping our Huskies together and leading them through the challenges of the pandemic,” South Hills Athletic Director Darren Murphy said. “We appreciate the work Coach did in keeping our kids safe.”
Robinson is a graduate of Covina High School and played football at Utah State. Robinson came to South Hills in January 2019 after two years as coach at Sky View High in Smithfield, Utah, where he led the team to back-to-back section titles. His coaching career spans more than 15 years at both the college and high school levels.
“Athletics teach our students valuable life skills about teamwork, commitment, strategy and perseverance,” Robinson said. “I’m proud of these kids – they have shown tremendous spirit during this pandemic.”
Given South Hills’ respected athletics program, it is anticipated the coaching slot will quickly attract a strong field of candidates for the job.
