HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A little more than four months after leading Kaiser High School to the state's division two championship, Rich Miano resigned as head coach, Wednesday. 
     
Miano sent a letter to parents and players expressing his intent to step away from the sideline after two seasons at the helm of the Cougars varsity program.
     
Miano told me that he was proud of what he and his staff accomplished at Kaiser high school and that his staff felt they left the program in a better state than when they took it over.

Miano also expressed his intent to "simplify life". Miano is married and is a father of four; on top of that the 51-year old is also about to begin a new job. It's a full slate of responsibilities when you toss in the Speed and Quickness camps and other projects he is a part of away from football.

The former UH Associate head coach says he will, "miss the coaches and my players immensely" but he wouldn't rule out a return to coaching, saying, "maybe in a year, maybe two, I don't know. But not right now."

Before Miano took over the Kaiser program, the Cougars had last played for a football title in the 1979 Prep Bowl, when Miano was a star defensive back.
