He teaches keyboarding — what used to be called typing — at the school.
Amorosi said he was informed about his situation at the school a week ago. He said he had to step aside not only to give himself an opportunity to seek out another job, but to give Burbank time as well to hire another head football coach.
“I have already applied at a couple of places and I have my feelers out,” Amorosi said. “I have to get a job so I can support my family. That is the most important thing for me now, to provide for my family.”
It appears Amorosi will leave Burbank on good terms. School Principal Bruce Osgood said the coach did a fine job running the Bulldogs program.
“He helped us build up the program,” Osgood said. “I know it’s tough for the kids because he did lot for them.
“We wish Ted the best and we appreciate all that he’s done for the program.”
Amorosi said one of the hardest things he had to do was break the news to his players that we wasn’t coming back.
He added that he enjoyed his time at Burbank and he was hoping he was going to be able to be at the school for years to come.
“Before a week ago, everything looked great,” he said. “We have nine players coming back next year on offense and seven on defense. I had almost all of my coaches in place and everything.
“My plan was to be here for a long time, and maybe spend the next 15 years coaching at Burbank High. But now that’s gone. The only word I can come up with is sad.”
