In a surprise announcement, Pat Jenkins stepped down from his position as head coach of the Aliso Niguel High School boys’ lacrosse team.  Coach Jenkins accumulated a 45-25 coaching record while being named Coach of the Year for the Sea View League in 2014, and co-Coach of the Year for the South Coast League in 2015.  Coach Jenkins is the first Aliso coach to lead the Wolverines to the second round of the CIF playoffs in program history.  Aliso finished 2015 as the #7 rated team in Orange County.
Coach Jenkins issued the following announcement to the Wolverine program:
As the families close to me may know, it’s been an exciting couple months for me and my family. Not only did my fiancé and I get married in August, we also found out were going to be having a baby! Obviously we’re incredibly excited to start our family, even if it’s a little sooner than expected. As most of us know, with a new family, come’s new financial challenges; challenges that are incredibly difficult to overcome as a lacrosse coach. It’s for this reason I’ve decided to take a step back from lacrosse to focus on my family and its needs. Again, anyone who knows me knows that I planned on being at Aliso Niguel for as long as I possibly could. My goal when taking over 5 years ago was to make our program into one of the top teams in the county, and together, we successfully accomplished that! My hope is that the administration will be able to compile a list of qualified coaches that will be able to pick up where we left off, and continue our program’s rise to the top. Again, I wish my tenure would have lasted much longer, but I look forward to watching this team continue to grow for years to come. I will always be a Wolverine.  

These last four years have been some of the most rewarding of my life, and I want to thank every player and family who helped contribute to that. Our family is strong, resilient, and above all, filled with great people. I look forward to seeing everyone these next few months as I begin to transition away from lacrosse. 

Thank you for everything,

Coach Pat Jenkins
