(Baldwin Park) – Chris Williams, who was an assistant at Gladstone last year, was named the Head Coach at Baldwin Park late last week multiple sources confirmed. Williams takes over for James Heggins who stepped down in February.
Williams served as the offensive coordinator at Wilson under Brian Zavala in 2010 and moved over to Gladstone last season where he coached the running backs and defensive backs. Before going to Wilson Williams was the OC at Workman for five years.
“He is a student of the game. He understands how to attack multiple defensive fronts and he is willing to change depending on the type of athlete,” Zavala said of Williams. “The kids relate to him well and he’s always looking to improve his coaching skills.”
Baldwin Park finished 2-8 last season and out of the playoffs. In 2010 the Braves made the playoffs where they fell to Schurr in the first round. They were 5-6 overall.
