Nogales High School Class of 2009 alum Jake Teyechea has confirmed he will no longer coach his alma mater’s football team after spending the last five years leading the program.
Nogales has decided not to retain him.
Teyechea’s tenure included four seasons on the field as the head coach (the 2020 season was cancelled because of COVID-19). His record was 12-28.
“Truly loved the kids; they have some really great kids,” Teyechea mentioned via a text message. “I will finish my contract and keep my options open for next year.”
After attending ASU and being part of the Tempe Corona del Sol staff, Teyechea returned to Nogales in 2014 to be the coach of the freshman team. He coached Nogales’ offensive and defensive lines on the varsity team in 2015, then took over as the head junior varsity coach in 2016 while continuing his work with the varsity defensive line. In 2017, he led the Apaches’ freshman squad and assisted the varsity, which was coached by Kevin Kuhm.
Nogales is in the process of finding Teyechea’s replacement.
