(El Monte) – Joshua Knight, who spent the last two years as an assistant at Arroyo, has turned down the head coaching job at El Monte.
Rumors were running rampant that Knight was going to be named the head coach at El Monte as early as last night. Multiple sources said it was a done deal. And although Knight did have interest he ultimately decided that it wasn’t the right fit and set the record straight Thursday.
“I decided to pass on it at this time,” Knight said early Thursday morning. “I just don’t think it’s a good situation for me.”
Meanwhile the coaching search continues for the Lions as they look for a replacement for Eric MacIntyre who stepped down after one year. Last year the Lions went 6-5 overall (4-2 in the Mission Valley League) and lost in the first round of the playoffs to Boron.
