Former Fresno State receiver Brian Roberson has been named football coach at McLane High.
Roberson, the Bulldogs’ 1996 team MVP, was an assistant at McLane last season and stepped in as interim coach after Pete Joseph resigned in February for family health reasons.
Roberson previously spent two seasons as an assistant at Clovis North and four at Memorial following a professional career that saw him play briefly in the NFL, CFL and XFL.
“McLane is proud to have someone with Brian’s experience lead our football program and build upon the success of our entire athletics program,” McLane principal Scott Lamm said in a news release. “We would like to thank all of the candidates for their outstanding professionalism, as this was an extremely competitive process.”
While at Fresno State from 1993-96, Roberson had 188 receptions, which ranks sixth in team history. He finished with 2,956 yards receiving and 15 touchdowns. His best season came in 1996, when he caught 78 passes for 1,248 yards and five touchdowns.
Roberson replaces Joseph, who went 19-25 overall and 9-11 in the North Yosemite League in four seasons at McLane.
