Leaving KIBS/KBOV is not easy, but joining the staff at BUHS will allow me the opportunity to pass along my passion for journalism. As we begin this new adventure I would like to thank my friends and family for their support. This transition would not be possible without the love and encouragement of my wife. Kelliann and I are in this together to help make a positive impact. We are eager to get started. Go Broncos!”
We are extremely excited to begin working with Arnie Palu here at Bishop Unified and we know he will be a great addition to an already outstanding staff at BUHS. Go Broncos!

After 15 seasons as the Head Coach of Bishop Union High Schools football program, Bill Egan is stepping down. Egan will continue on as a teacher at BUHS. Coach Egan’s run at BUHS includes an overall record of 114-64 leading the Broncos to the CIF playoffs each of his 15 seasons including capturing a CIF Southern Section championship in 2010.
Coach Egan’s teams won High Desert League championships 6 times. The Broncos winning the HDL crown in 2003, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2011, and 2012.
Coach Egan begin at Bishop Union High School in 2001 leading the Broncos to a 6-4 record and third place league finish. The Broncos showed steady improvement in the early 2000’s capturing the High Desert League title in 2003 and finishing with a 11-2 record. The 2003 Broncos lost to LA Baptist in the CIF semifinals 21-14, with a last second Bronco drive coming up just short. Under Coach Egan the Broncos consistently made deep playoff runs.
Under Coach Egan’s leadership the Broncos claimed the 2010 CIF southern section northeastern division championship. The Broncos finished 2010 with a 13-1 record. Coach Egan was named the CIF SS Northeastern Division Coach of the year. Bishop’s path to the championship included sound playoff victories over Mojave (41-0), at Chadwick (49-20), and Pasadena Poly (44-14). The 2010 championship game played at Bishop Union’s John Schawb field featured two public school, Bishop Union and former Desert Inyo League rival Boron. Bishop withstood a late bobcat charge winning the title game 30-22. Coach Egan and the talented 2010 Broncos delivered BUHS their second CIF football title, the first coming in 1957.
Coach Egan is always quick to thank his wife Maggie for her support. Mrs. Coach, as referred to by Bronco players, has served side by side with Coach Egan. Maggie has provided countless hours to the Bronco football program serving in every possible way. From organizing and running fundraisers to baking the famous “Bronco Brownies” and everything in-between. Maggie was a pillar of the Bronco sideline the past 15 seasons delivering water at time outs and providing tender care to injured Broncos. A highlight of what I expect was a roller-coaster of emotions-type day at the Egan home, the Medical Staff at Bishop’s Northern Inyo Hospital presented a $10,000 check to Maggie Tuesday. The generous donation is headed to City of Hope for Cancer Research. Ups and downs no doubt…but also a huge impact, no doubt.
Coach Egan and Mrs. Coach leave large shoes to fill at the Bishop Union High School football program.

Kern Valley wins third straight HDL football title
by Arnie Palu
Bishop Union High school football took a 14-3 halftime lead into the locker room Friday Night. In the second Kern Valley Senior Sammy Adams started the KV revolution. Adams founded the Kern Valley comeback with a series of big plays starting with returning the second half kickoff 85-yards for a touchdown. Adams second half heroics included jarring a would be touchdown pass from a Bronco receiver, scoring the go-ahead touchdown with 3:42 to play, and picking off a broncos pass in the final seconds putting the game on ice. Kern Valley wins the HDL title with a 17-14 win. Football is a team game, but Sammy Adams owned the second half of this rivalry game. Kern Valley fans will surely be toasting Sam Adams for years to come when they remember their 2015 High Desert League Championship.
Bishop Union now must turn the page and get ready for the postseason. The Broncos finish the regular season with a 4-6 record including a 2-2 mark in the High Desert League, good for third place behind KV and runner up California City. The Broncos are the #10 seed in the CIF Central Section Division 5 Championships. BUHS will travel to #7 Mendota High School Friday, November 13th. Fowler High School, the #2 seed, has a bye into the second round. The winner of the BUHS-Mendota game will travel to Fowler for the Quarterfinals Friday, November 20th. Friday’s opening round game will be broadcast live on AM 1230 KBOV, and streamed live at kibskbov.com through the listen live link, kickoff is set for 6pm. Mendota has a 6-4 record and tied for 2nd in the West Sierra League. Mendota is located west of Fresno just 368 miles from Bishop.
