Biography - Coach Jim Granucci
I just recently retired after 43 years of public safety service, most recently as the Director of the San Mateo County Forensic Laboratory.
Prior to my service with the Sheriff's Office, I served as the Police Chief for the City of San Carlos for 7 years, and 28 years with the Redwood City Police Department.
My love of Track & Field goes back to my high school days, when I attended San Carlos High School. After high school, I ran for the College of San Mateo for 2 years before transferring to San Jose State University.
I attended San Jose State where I received my undergraduate degree. I also attended College of Notre Dame where I received my graduate degree.
I have 5 grandchildren, and we are expecting our 6th in April 2011.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with the other coaches, and the athletes of San Mateo High School. I will be focusing on High Jump, Long Jump, and Triple Jump this season.
