The Kamehameha football program is searching for a new coach for the second time in three years.

Doug Cosbie resigned as Kapalama head coach Wednesday morning citing family reasons.

“It has been a privilege and blessing to have worked and coached at Kamehameha Schools,” said Cosbie. “We will greatly miss the people we worked with and friendships we have formed over the last three years.”

Cosbie joined Kamehameha in 2013, having played for the Dallas Cowboys for 10 years under legendary coach Tom Landry.

He led the Warriors to a 19-9 overall record in three seasons, while compiling an 11-7 mark in ILH play.

Kamehameha finished the 2015 season ranked 5th in the Cover2 power poll with a 5-4 record.

“Coach Cosbie is a ‘champion of young men,’” said Kamehameha athletics director Glennie Adams. “He emphasizes not only the quality of our young mens’ play, but more importantly the quality of their character.”

Cosbie’s last day is Jan. 14, 2016. The search for his replacement will begin immediately, school officials said.
