Chris Saunders, Head Coach

Menlo-Atherton is proud of our football program, and thrilled to have named Chris Saunders Head Coach as of March 2020. 


Coach Saunders is a Bay Area native who has been coaching in the West Catholic Athletic League primarily as an offensive coordinator for over half a decade. Prior to coaching Bay Area high school football, Coach spent two seasons at Menlo College as the Special Teams Coordinator and one season at Central Catholic High School in Portland, Oregon as an assistant.

Before his career of teaching and coaching, he went to Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon where he played tight end in one the nation’s best offenses in NCAA Division III where he received all-league honors.

We're thrilled to have him and look forward to his inaugural season with the Bears in the fall of 2020.


Go Bears!
