It is with great sadness and pride that we confirm the passing of Coach Larry Reisbig on April 10th, 2017. He went peacefully in Newport Beach, CA., with tremendous family support and love.
Reisbig retired as head coach of the LBCC football team following the 2002 season and left as the college's all-time winningest coach. In 11 seasons, he compiled an overall record of 83-34-1 (.707 winning percentage). Nine of his 11 teams had winning seasons and eight of his squads qualified for postseason bowl games. His Vikings won six Mission Conference championships while his 1995 squad compiled an undefeated 11-0 record on its way to winning a NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. Reisbig was named Mission Conference coach of the year six times as well as state coach of the year in 1995. He was inducted into the California Community College Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2006. Reisbig also served as men's athletic director at LBCC from 2003-10.
Reisbig is a native of Los Angeles. He made first team All-City playing football at Van Nuys High School in the late 1950s and college football at Washington State University in the early 1960s. He went on to head coach for College of The Canyons, Pasadena City College, Long Beach City College and Long Beach State University.
Coach Reisbig is survived by his loving wife of 58 years of marriage, Patty...his son Mike and daughter Stephanie Anne, with 3 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
