Magellan replaces Marques as boys soccer coach at Los Altos

Officially, this is Roberto Magellan’s first season as Los Altos High’s varsity boys soccer coach. But technically, he also held the job 20 years ago – albeit briefly.

In 1999, Magellan took over for Vava Marques for three weeks when he went out of town. This time, he’s replacing Marques on a permanent basis. After 21 years as coach, Marques resigned in October; Magellan was hired this month.
