POMONA, Calif. -- Roman Gabriel has resigned as head football coach at Cal Poly Pomona, and is considering an offer to be offensive coordinator for the United States Football League's Boston Breakers.

Cal Poly, 1-10 this year, is weighing a decision to drop its football program.


Gabriel, 42, who resigned Friday, said he received the Breakers' offer from head coach Dick Coury.

'The Breakers seem like a real good step,' Gabriel said, 'especially when you've been coaching for the last three years and you don't know whether you have a job,' said Gabriel, who had a three-year record of 8-24 at Cal Poly. 'The feeling I get is that the university will drop the football program.'

University President Hugh La Bounty said the school will decide next week whether or not to drop the sport.
