(La Mirada) – Joaquin Aguilar, who has been an assistant coach at La Mirada for the last four years, was promoted to head coach the school announced Tuesday.
Aguilar has been coaching for 22 years overall including stops as the head coach Pius X Catholic High School and John Glenn. He has also been an assistant at Glenn, St. Bernard’s, San Bernardino and Salesian.
“I am very excited about this opportunity to lead the Matadores. Most of the staff is returning so the transition should be relatively easy,” Aguilar said. “We will continue to run our version of the West Coast offense and our attacking defense. While we had several key players graduate our returners were either starters or had extensive playing time.”
Aguilar replaces Mike Moschetti who stepped down in December.
