After nearly two decades helping build Regina into one of the premier football programs in the state Jason Dumont is retiring from coaching.
Dumont, who spent 17 seasons at Regina including the last three as head coach, announced his retirement in a statement on Wednesday.
“For the last 37 years of my life I have either been playing or coaching the game I love, the 17 years coaching at Regina has been the best part of my football journey,” Dumont wrote in a statement. “It is time for me to step away from the game I love and spend more time enjoying other aspects of my life. A special thanks to Marv, Ed, Mike and Alex our time together was special. Beyond the wins and losses we did it as friends and with class. We didn’t just build a championship program we did it the right way. I will cherish those times together more than you know.”
Dumont spent 14 seasons as associate head coach and defensive coordinator helping Regina reach the state title game 11 times while claiming seven titles.
Regina won six consecutive state titles from 2010 to 2015 a stretch that included a state-record 56-game winning streak from 2010 to 2013.
Dumont replaced Marv Cook as head coach prior to the 2021 season leading the Regals to a 23-7 mark over the past three seasons.
Regina won nine games twice under Dumont and reached the Class 1A playoffs each of the past three seasons.
The Regals were 9-2 and reached the Class 1A quarterfinals this fall.
“I’ve had the privilege of working closely with Coach Dumont throughout his head coaching career. His unwavering dedication and passion for the game have left a lasting mark on our football program and the lives of our student-athletes,” Regina Activities Director Taylor Hotek in a statement. “We will miss his presence on the sidelines and we are grateful for the incredible legacy he leaves behind. We wish him all the best in his well-deserved retirement and are confident that his influence will continue to be felt in the years to come.”
