Athletic Director

Letter from coach

Administration, Staff, Parents, and Players;


It is my honor and privilege to serve as your new head football coach.  I wanted to take the time to introduce myself to you. My name is Jason Bumbaca I am extremely happy and proud to represent Del Mar Football.  I will do my best to represent you in a first class manner and to honor the Del Mar traditions as we work towards BVAL Championships.

I want to invite you to take a look into the future of Del Mar Don’s football. The Del Mar community; staff, parents and players are bonded by one common goal: The overall success of the Del Mar Football Program. I want you to know my number one goal as the head football coach is to help student-athletes graduate meeting A-G requirements. We will do this by putting a structure in place that encourages success in the classroom, on the field, and in the community. I believe that I have assembled an outstanding coaching staff of men that will be great teachers and role models for our young men. I would like for you all to be involved in this process, and communication is welcomed.

I would like to share some of the expectations of our coaching philosophy with you:

  • Everyone involved in the program will have the integrity to do what is right.

  • Student-Athletes will do their best on and off the field

  • Student-Athletes will earn a 2.0, and meet A-G requirements in order to participate in the program (year round, not just in season)

  • Student-Athletes not meeting the academic requirements will go to a study hall on campus (Daily in places of football activities)

There is a saying that “It takes a village to raise a child.” I will have 50+ young men that will need that village and I hope you will be a part of it. Football and family have been big influences in my life and I can’t wait to bring this type of atmosphere to not only the football program, but the Del Mar campus. I thank you for this opportunity and can’t what to show you the future. Go Dons!
