A familiar face returns to lead the football program at El Diamante High School.
El Diamante physical education teacher Devin Ramos was named the Miners’ new head coach on Friday, El Diamante athletic director Kimberly Mirwald said.
Ramos was interim head coach of El Diamante in 2018 after Mark Rogers retired in August of the same season.
“We are very happy to find him at the head [coach]”said Mirwald.
Ramos replaces Chris Frankland, who was fired after the 2021 season.

Ramos, a former College of the Sequoias quarterback, also has head coaching experience. He was the Miners varsity baseball head coach from 2014-2016, guiding El Diamante to three straight playoff appearances while also compiling an overall record of 51-37. The Miners won the West Yosemite League baseball championship in 2015.
On the soccer field, Ramos started coaching soccer at El Diamante in 2009. He was the varsity defensive coordinator for minors from 2013 to 2018, helping to steer minors to a Central Division II title in 2013.
