    • December 20, 2023

    Terry Henigan, who coached Irvine to four CIF Southern Section football championships, died Tuesday, his longtime assistant and co-head coach Rick Curtis confirmed Wednesday.

    Henigan was the football head coach at Cypress from 1976-79. He took over at Irvine for the 1981 season and coached the Vaqueros for 29 seasons. He retired after the 2009 season at age 65 and moved to Indio.

    He coached Irvine to CIF Southern Section championships three years in a row, 1991-93, and in 2000.

    Curtis remembered Henigan as “tough but fair.”

    “He was a commander,” said Curtis, who is now the football coach at Crean Lutheran.

    Plans for services have not been determined.
