Following an 0-10 season a year ago, things can only go up for the Mission Bay football team. With that in mind, the school recently hired Dane Roman to be its new head coach. Roman, who has been an assistant coach at several area schools in the past (including Mission Bay), looks to bring enthusiasm and a new attitude to the Bucs.

“The goal is to develop and mentor high school diverse student-athletes in life and football,” Roman said. He added that his focus is on grades, nutrition, faith, family and football.

An assistant coach at Mission Bay from 2012-16, Roman caught the eyes of a number of people, one of whom is school athletic director Jorge Palacios.

“We hired Dane because he’s an experienced coach, member of the Pacific Beach community, and someone who is concerned not only with the students’ performance on the field, but their character off of it, as well,” Palacios said.

For Roman, turning around a program that struggled so much a season ago will not happen overnight. He brings to the table the experience and enthusiasm to get things going in the right direction.

“Last year was tough due to injuries and transfers,” Roman said. “I’m looking to build the program up from the foundation.”

Roman, who did not coach a season ago due to the passing of his father, is a co-owner of the Beachcomber bar in Mission Beach. He has also been a track coach at MBHS.
