Del Valle head coach Bobby Acosta announced to his team on Thursday morning that he was resigning his post to take a position as an offensive coordinator at an unnamed FCS program.
Acosta posted a 4-16 record in two seasons leading the Cardinals.
Del Valle, which is one of the largest schools in the Austin area and is experiencing heavy growth, has made a strong investment into their facilities, but that investment hasn’t translated into wins on the field as the Cardinals haven’t posted a winning season since 2009 and they haven’t won a playoff game since 1967.
“My experience at Del Valle High School has been incredible, Texas High School Football is the best in the country," he said. "I’m sad we didn’t get it done while I was here, but I’m looking forward to seeing great things from Del Valle in the future. I love our players at Del Valle, but I was presented with an amazing opportunity at the next level to work with a friend."
Expect Del Valle ISD Athletic Director Tawni Angel to quickly move on posting this job and despite the Cardinals struggles, expect there to be plenty of interest in this opening across the state.
