Temple City alum, longtime assistant football coach, Matt Lopez (AKA: The Suave One) has returned to the San Gabriel Valley and the Rio Hondo League by joining the staff at San Marino High School.
Lopez began his coaching career at Temple City upon graduation and later joined Jude Oliva’s staff at San Gabriel. After a 2011 title appearance with the Matadors, Lopez moved on to San Dimas and was part of the coaching staff in the Saints CIF championship run in 2013. He later moved on to Buena Park.
“Buena Park was great to me and my family,” Lopez said on Monday evening. “But I am happy to be back in the Rio Hondo League and close to home.”
Lopez will be working with wide receivers.
