HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Cameron Higgins has informed Kaiser High School officials of his decision to step down as head football coach, Higgins told Hawaii News Now on Thursday.

In two seasons since taking over the program following Rich Miano's departure, Higgins compiled a 9-9 record, including a 4-5 mark last season.

Higgins, who has a growing career in real estate, says his work schedule had become too large of a time commitment to continue coaching the Cougars full time.

Interim athletic director Brian Almadova says assistant Richard Torres and other members of Higgin's coaching staff have been leading offseason workouts in the coach's absence. 

School officials are in the process of posting the opening on the Kaiser and OIA websites, a task that's expected to be completed by the weekend.

Calls to the Kaiser High School athletic department were directed to principal Justin Mew, who was not available for comment.
