Gene Vollnogle, a former assistant Los Alamitos High School football coach, died in his sleep at home in Los Alamitos, The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.
According to the newspaper, Vollnogle, 81, was a Carson High School coach whose teams won 10 City Section championships before he retired and took a position as Griffins assistant coach in the 1990s.
“He was an incredible football mind,” Los Alamitos Coach John Barnes told the Los Angeles Times. “He’d watch a film and get more out of it than 10 guys in the room. He’s truly a high school football coaching legend.”
