Broncos' voice Logan fired from prep coaching post
For decades, Dave Logan has been an icon in Colorado, as a star athlete and later as a Denver Broncos receiver.
Since retiring as a player Logan has led a double football life, serving as the Broncos play-by-play man on radio as well as hosting a show on KOA-AM. But he has also been a very successful high school football coach in the Denver area.
But on Wednesday, Logan was fired as head coach at Mullen High, where he had won four of his six state championships, apparently because the Lasallian Catholic school wanted a coach who would spend more time with the program rather than having to divide his responsibilites.
"Our responsibility is to always be aware of the entire culture at Mullen according to Lasallian values," Ryan Clement, president and chief executive at Mullen told the Denver Post. "After discussions, we decided the best interest of the school in the long term was someone who can be a full-time member of the school community and be engaged in every facet. Part of that is to be a fully engaged member. (Logan) had great integrity, and you can't argue with his success at all."
There are many affiliated with the school who are outraged by the decision. However, Logan said he still plans to coach again if an opportunity presents itself.
