Bishop Gorman High School announced today that Coach Kenny Sanchez has resigned his positions at Bishop Gorman. Coach Sanchez has served as the head football coach and dean of students since 2015. During his tenure, the program has seen much success including state championships and national recognition.

“I am grateful for all the opportunities Bishop Gorman has given me over the years and proud of what we accomplished as a program. I wish to thank everyone who helped us create such a special legacy, especially the assistant coaches and players. I would also like to thank the Administration, staff, alumni and the entire Bishop Gorman community. Lastly, none of it would have been possible without the support of my family. It is best at this time for me to step away while I consider other opportunities,” said Coach Sanchez.

Athletic Director Grant Rice said, “We appreciate the contributions Kenny has made to Bishop Gorman and we believe that he will continue to be successful, impacting young adults in the years to come.” Rice continued, “While it will not be easy to replace Coach Sanchez, we will begin the search for a replacement immediately.”

Bishop Gorman is known nationally for its football program. Their lost to Liberty High School last fall ended their string of state championships. It was their first loss to a Nevada opponent since 2008.

Football coach Tony Sanchez parted ways with UNLV at the end of the season. Tony was the coach at Bishop Gorman before UNLV and some people are speculating that he may go back to Gorman.
