Coach Thomas returned to Servite in January of 2018 after coaching at his alma mater, Crespi from 2012-2017.
Coach Thomas previously served as head coach at Servite from 2005-2012 winning seven league titles, two CIF PAC 5 championships and one State title while going 75-25 overall in eight seasons. This puts Coach Thomas as the second most winningest coach in Servite history, only second to Coach Persons, with his one-year record of 10-3-0. Granted, if Coach Persons had coached more than one year, his percentage might not have been so high, but that leads to speculation.
Upon his return, Coach Troy Thomas said,
“I am excited to be back, thankful and humbled by the opportunity to return to Servite. I believe in what Servite stands for and resonate with the traditions established here over the years. There is nothing like the Servite community and their love for football. I am eager to get started and reconnect with the Servite faculty, staff and alumni.”
Coach Thomas began his coaching career as a high school defensive coordinator and strength coach in 1992 at Crespi High School of Encino. After four years at Crespi, he spent the next three seasons as a college football assistant coach at the University Hawaii. In 1999 he spent a year at Westlake High School as a defensive coordinator and strength coach before returning to the collegiate ranks coaching under Pat Hill at Fresno State. The following season he earned his first head coaching job at Crespi where he spent four years before making the move to Servite in 2005.
