Caldarera decides it's time again, leaves head coaching post at Service
Yet another CIC football coach is departing the sideline.
Tuesday morning, Service High School's Jason Caldarera announced he will step away from his position as head coach after three seasons. This was his second go-round leading the Cougars. He also guided the group from 2000 to 2011 but his reason for leaving this time is the same as it was seven years ago.
"It was to take care of family," he said by phone. "Coming back, my son and his group of seniors came through. It was important to be involved but my wife has been an angel all these years and it's just time to spend more time with our youngest. He's in sixth grade."
He's the fourth coach from the CIC following the 2017 season to hang up the headset. He joins Dimond's Nick Winkler, John Lewis of South and Roger Spackman at Chugiak.
Caldarera won state titles in 2008 and 2011.
He will stay on as the school's athletic director.
