GLENDALE — Those who played and coached alongside John Cicuto can attest to his contributions on and off the field.
The 63-year-old Cicuto, who helped develop his share of fine coaches and players, resigned Sunday at the team’s banquet. He finished 98-95-2 in 19 seasons, in addition to leading the Vaqueros to three bowl victories in five appearances.
Cicuto, a Fresno State graduate, will continue to serve as Glendale college’s athletic director and teach full time.
It’s not clear who will succeed Cicuto, a former All-American tackle at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame High.
Cicuto took over the program in 1989 from Jim Sartoris, who coached Glendale college from 1972-89 and is the program’s winningiest coach. He was previously the team’s defensive coordinator, beginning his days as an assistant at Glendale college in 1975.
