Coaching Staff 2017

In his 5th sea­son at Galileo, Mar­cus Black­sher Jr. has been pro­moted to asso­ciate head coach of the var­sity team. His main role will be coör­di­nat­ing the var­sity offense and work­ing with player’s aca­d­e­mic progress. Stephen Car­ton ben­e­fited from the change, gain­ing the role of frosh soph head coach for this sea­son. Coach Mark Huynh will make a return to coör­di­nat­ing the var­sity defense and retain the role of coör­di­nat­ing spe­cial teams for both squads. Addi­tional coaches are cur­rently slog­ging through the paper trail.

Coaching Staff 2013

The 2013 sea­son will point the pro­gram back to a more tra­di­tional style of coach­ing with 2 sep­a­rate coach­ing staffs. While the 2012 staff returns for another sea­son (with 1 change — Dono­van Phillips in place of Jackie Phung), coaches Espy and Hardee are first year coaches in the Galileo Foot­ball Pro­gram. This change will allow var­sity coaches to focus on var­sity play­ers and vice versa for the frosh soph coaches. Coach Mark’s staff will con­tinue to work through­out the off-season (win­ter camp, spring ball, & sum­mer camp) until the 2 teams break for their own prac­tices in August.

Coaching Staff 2012

The 2012 coach­ing staff is a sym­bol of the Galileo tra­di­tion with 5 alumni. They also rep­re­sent some­thing unique as coach George White’s fam­ily tree reaches another gen­er­a­tion; all 4 assis­tant coaches played under coach Huynh who played under coach White & coach Kevin Adams.

Coaching Staff 2011

The 2011 coach­ing staff did not retain Dominic Mul­lens and Char­lie Kaine from 2010 due to a con­flict in job sched­ul­ing. Coach Ben Moore returns in a 75% capac­ity after a time-challenging 2010 sea­son. Coach Steve San­toro, who played at Yale, brings an east coast expe­ri­ence. Coach Saepate Vasa who grew up in chi­na­town and  attended Galileo his fresh­man year, is in a semi-homecoming although he grad­u­ated from Rodriguez High in Fair­field. In addi­tion, coaches Israel Jones round out a 6-man staff.

Coaching Staff 2010

Retain­ing 3 coaches from last sea­son, the 2010 staff’s addi­tion of Char­lie Kaine and Dono­van Phillips was enough to sus­tain the program’s com­pet­i­tive edge as the frosh/soph team came 1 touch­down shy of a cham­pi­onship and the var­sity team, as well, was 1 touch­down away from a return trip to the cham­pi­onship despite los­ing AAA Run­ning Back of the Year, Quincy Nel­son, to an MCL tear with 3 games remain­ing and start­ing cen­ter and the heart of the lions’ defense, Max Mal­loy in the first game of the reg­u­lar season.

Coaching Staff 2009

The 2009 staff, a truly multi-culturally well-rounded bunch, blessed with 40 hard-working play­ers, helped Galileo reclaim it’s rep­u­ta­tion as a foot­ball pow­er­house in San Fran­cisco by win­ning it’s 16th city cham­pi­onship, the most in city his­tory. Most notably, the cham­pi­onship came on the heels of an 18-game los­ing streak.

Coaching Staff 2008

Head coach, Kevin Adams, fin­ishes his career here in his 15th sea­son as head coach and another 10-plus as an assis­tant under George White through the 80’s. Assis­tants and fel­low Galileo teach­ers, Don Har­ris and Mark Huynh assume a big­ger role in the pro­gram as offen­sive and defen­sive coör­di­na­tors respectively.
