Santiago girls basketball coach Pablo Martinez, who guided the Cavaliers to Garden Grove League titles and playoff appearances each of the past four years, has resigned, he confirmed Tuesday.

Martinez, a walk-on coach, said he has been offered a girls basketball coaching position at another school but isn’t yet able to discuss the situation.

“It was a tough decision (to resign),” said Martinez, who coached his alma mater for five seasons. “I love the school. What we accomplished was nuts.”

Santiago finished 18-9 last season, including a 10-0 record in league. The Cavaliers lost to Claremont 51-41 in the first round of the CIF-SS Division 3AA playoffs.

The team was led by All-County junior point guard Andi Martinez, the daughter of the coach who earned league MVP.
