Oklahoma high school football: Robert Borgstadt steps down as Sapulpa's football coach, Spiro hires Brett Davis
SAPULPA – Robert Borgstadt announced Tuesday he was stepping down as Sapulpa's head football coach.
He spent the past five seasons leading the Chieftains, going 20-32 over that time. But the past three years, Sapulpa was 18-14 and made the playoffs every season. The program went 3-16 the two seasons before Borgstadt arrived from Sand Springs, where as a defensive coordinator, he helped the Sandites reach the Class 6A-II state championship game.
Borgstadt told the Tulsa World he wanted to spend more time with his daughters before they go to college.
"I want to be with them as much as I can because it’s gonna be over before I know it,” Borgstadt said. “I'll try to find an assistant’s job where I don’t have to spend so much time coaching and go from there."
Borgstadt's daughters are stars on Verdigris' girls basketball team. Lexy, a senior, signed with Oklahoma Christian while Morgan, a sophomore, also averages double figures scoring.
Spiro hires Brett Davis as new football coach
Brett Davis was announced Wednesday as Spiro's next head football coach.
Davis comes to Spiro from Coachella Valley High School in California, where he compiled a 40-26 record as head coach. Coachella Valley won the Desert Valley League in 2017-18 and led the nation in passing in 2018.
He replaces Chris Bunch, the Hall of Fame coach who announced his retirement in December.
