Vista Murrieta High School is putting its prestigious football program in the hands of a man who has been an integral part of the team's success in recent years.

The school announced today that the new varsity head coach is David Olson, a longtime assistant coach who served as defensive coordinator for the Broncos the last five years. He replaces Coley Candaele, who compiled a 132-25 record as the school's only head football coach since its opening in 2003. Candaele, now the school's athletic director, headed up the search for his replacement.

"Coach Olson has been a key component to our success in both football and track for the past decade," Candaele said in a news release. "His organizational skills, initiative, ideas, and his competitive spirit will drive Vista Murrieta football to the next level."

The Broncos already have performed at a high level the last several years. They won the CIF-SS championship in 2011 and finished as runner-up in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. It will be up to Olson to maintain the high level of performance and help Vista continue to appear annually in the biggest games.

"I'm very excited that I have been given the opportunity to lead the Vista Murrieta football program, and I look forward to working hard with the student-athletes, staff, teachers, administration and parents to continue the program's success," said Olson (pictured at right).

Olson has 28 years of coaching experience. Prior to his arrival at Vista Murrieta, he coached footabll at Los Amigos, Capistrano Valley and Estancia high schools.

"For years, David has demonstrated his passion for coaching and building young men and women of character," said principal Mick Wager. "He is committed to honor the traditions we have established and continuing our tradition of competing with class."
