Pirates News · A Note from Our New Coach!


We’d like to welcome our new football coach, Tyler Garcia! We look forward to having Coach Garcia at Cyprus High School, his own alma mater! Coach Garcia is a former Pirate and we are excited to have him back wearing the blue and gold! We asked Tyler to tell us a little about himself and he took the time to send a brief biography. Thanks, Coach and welcome!

I am excited to accept the Head Football position and even more excited to be coming home. I was born and raised in Magna and a graduate of Cyprus High class of ’94.  While a student at Cyprus I was involved in many activities and organizations including Student Government and Football.  I was the Class of 1994 Hugh Cannon Award recipient and received All-Region football honors.  After high school I went on to college and earned a BS in Business and a MS in Business Administration.  I have coached in and out of the Magna Community for a total of 25 years (starting right out of high school). I have a lot of respect for the previous football coaching staff and team for their wonderful accomplishments over the past 4 years.  I am excited to build on that success and continue what was started. 

I am passionate kids and love to create a positive learning environment in the classroom, in the halls, in the weight room, on the field, and in the community.  I will be teaching at Cyprus in the Fall but in the mean time I will be fulfilling my teaching assignment at Kearns High and fulfilling my coaching responsibilities at Cyprus effective now.  I am excited to get started and thankful for the opportunity to come home.

Once a Pirate ALWAYS a Pirate!
