Aguilar Joins Baldwin Park Staff

Ibis Aguilar has joined the staff at Baldwin Park.

By Tim Peterson

(Baldwin Park) – Former South El Monte/Bonita head coach Ibis Aguilar has joined the coaching staff at Baldwin Park  to work with new head coach Josh Knight.

Knight and Aguilar played together at Pasadena City College.

“I played with him at PCC so I’m familiar with him. I didn’t call him right away when I knew he was available because I thought he was only interested in a head coaching job,” Knight said.  “But I’m glad it worked out for him to come over.”

“They have a PE teaching position available and for me that’s the most important thing,” Aguilar said. “Josh was my quarterback at PCC so I’m excited to be working with him now. As coaches it seems we’re all connected in some sort of way.”

    There is a common denominator here Los Altos, San Gabriel, El Rancho? What coach has been at all 3? I could out this guy but I’ll wait to see if he wants to be outed.. Hmm 🤔

    @Friday Knights
    According to P.A,
    Medrano- Runs too complex of an offense. Doesn’t have the talent to run what he runs so he should keep it simple.
    Ziola- isn’t good enough of a coach. Only wins because of talent and Nevens while at Los Altos.
    Oliva- Overhyped and only runs screens.

    These are all well respected coaches. Seems like he contradicts himself. 1 coach is too complex for his talent while another only wins because of talent and another is too simple and only runs 1 play.

    And two trips to the quarter-finals while Nevens was in middle-school. Nike Sparq has Nevens as a 170 lbs, 5.1 40yd dash as an incumbent sophomore. Obviously no growth in the Los Altos program back then. All the success had to be of the one kid. And Ziola is definitely to blame for DBar’s 0-10 b/c he was an off-campus assistant coach. Guys, if you can’t tell already, PA is the SGV Football guru, the know all tell all be all of high school football

    @P.A aka El Rancho hater
    OMG didn’t SEM go through this last year with this guy? If I recall there was 100 comments airing this Melendez guys dirty laundry. So, Gallardo fires Mooney and hires shady guys like Melendez? Way to go SEM.

    Hey P.A what exactly is your beef with Medranos offense? Seems like he’s doing a pretty good job.

    2014 and 2016… loss to Colony and Paraclete…
    From T. Peterson: Exactly.

    @ MVS
    I don’t think it was twice.. but if it is in fact twice, why couldn’t he get the Nogales gig? He got beat out by a coach from Workman¿ hmmm… I think that zero win season is the memory of Nogales at least.
    From T. Peterson: Yes twice. They lost to Colony in 2014 and Paraclete in 2016 which was Ziola’s last year as HC.

    You either have a kid in the program who can’t handle being coached by medrano or you are on staff and can’t handle his offense so want him to dumb it down for you, why don’t you do us all a favor and resign, Medrano isn’t getting fired, only way he leaves is if he walks away, words directly from the mouth of the highest person in the district.

    Wouldn’t surprise me, there was one during the Roddy Hiatt days who kept leaking info that only people on the staff would know. Absolutely shame people like P.A. won’t dare identify themselves cuz they are cowards.

    And while we’re on the subject of complexity and dirt… the infamous Richard Melendez is back on the sidelines. He’s at South El Monte. Talk about a complex dirtbag haha. The guy has been forcibly removed from every coaching position he’s ever had. Why would South EM hire this guy? I’m taking bets on how long it will take for this D.bag to get himself in trouble again.

  12. May 1, 2018 - 6:56 pm | Permalink

    Dirt? No dirt bro just facts. Anyone who watches an ER game can see the amount of mistakes the team makes. The complexity of the offense is the root cause. I don’t want him fired just simplify.

    Not only was Dale Ziola 0-10 it was a bad 0 wins. They’re we’re competitive except for vs walnut. Looking more and more like it was more Tyler Nevens than Ziola. At LA. That’s gotta scare schools away.
    From T. Peterson: A school won’t look at that. That’s on the HC. Ziola took Los Altos to the CIF Finals- twice.

    @PA: As often as you talk about ER and its complicated offense you must me a mole. You sound like the type of guy that hangs around a program collecting all the dirt he can to then accuse the coach of something and try and get him fired or get his job. Boomer has a back stabber hanging around I think. Remember what happened to Arrellanes at Los Altos. Back stabbing made him give up high school football.

    Interesting wunderkind Ziola from Los Altos has dropped so far down in the draft. Can’t find an HC gig except for a last second gig at Workman and that’s a don’t call us we’ll call you thing. With his credentials one would have thought D1 schools would be ringing his phone off the hook.

    I don’t know about Ziola and schools don’t know about Ziola because he struggled at his last job 0-10. I think the schools are hesitated about hiring Ziola.
    From T. Peterson: Ziola wasn’t 0-10. He wasn’t the head coach. A team’s record goes on the HC, not an assistant.

    There are some pretty good local high school coaches that played at PCC during the same era. Antoine Simms Head Coach at Muir, Ariel Bellofiore Head Coach at Salesian, Josh Knight Head Coach at Baldwin Park, Scott Traver LB/Special Teams Coordinator at St. Francis, Chuck Leonardis OL coach at Arroyo, Ibis Aguilar at Baldwin Park. Wouldn’t be surprised if there were more out there

    If Robles goes to Nogales then Ziola to Workman makes sense. Ziola is in the district. Ziola could actually revitalize Workman.

    Maybe he needs to go back to El Monte and get one of those pills the kids are handing out. Two many burgers or tacos??? BP will not beat El Rancho.

    He got turned down for an assistant position and now dead set on smack talking a 33 year old coach who has a semi final under his belt and a quarterfinal appearance with a vastly undertalented senior class at ER in 2016. Give it a rest loser, no one from Pico wants medrano out.

    Breaking news Workman coach Robles is the new coach at Nogales. Take it to the bank . Talk about a upgrade for the guy.

    No I didn’t apply lol
    But based on what is he a good coach? You know he is a good coach I’ll give you that. But imo his new offense is just ridiculously hard on the kids especially on the below average qbs currently at the ranch. That’s all, don’t be so sensitive

    @Prognasticators Anonymous,

    Dude. What’s your issue with Medrano? You apply for the ER job and not get it? BP upset San Dimas, one of the best programs in the SGV just 2 years ago and that’s not the only time they’ve done it. So if they beat ER, it’s not anything overly news worthy. Besides , over the last few years, the VVL has proven to be a tougher league than the DRL.
    As I’ve said before, if ER were foolish enough to get rid of Medrano, they lose hope of finally having some stability. Unlike you P.A., most people actually think he’s a pretty good coach.

    If ER loses that game vs BP, the rancheros will lose their minds! That will be the end of the Medrano era for all intents and purposes

    @ Prognosticators: My guess is that either the administration at Baldwin Park High has some extra money available, or a P.E. teacher happens to be retiring at just the right time.

    Some schools are more serious than other schools about football. Baldwin Park gets it. More on campus coaches the chances are better for the program. Football sets the tone for the rest the programs on campus. Football brings in the student body. Football programs on campus are more important than people think. That’s why in Texas, high school coaches get paid more than the principal because they’re worth more than the principal. Until the administration figures that out the better the whole school will be. The schools with good football programs usually have healthy student body. That’s why USC has more applications to attend, so the admission now accepts the cream of the crop. More smarter kids on campus and the institution as a whole is better for it.

  39. April 29, 2018 - 8:41 pm | Permalink

    But the more I think about this, how does a spot open up for an assistant? Head coaches are quitting because they can’t get on campus spots. Justification?
