Moschetti Returns to La Mirada

Mike Moschetti Returns to La Mirada!

By Tim Peterson
(La Mirada) – Mike Moschetti has returned as the head coach at La Mirada after a two-year hiatus he confirmed Thursday.

Joaquin Aguilar resigned after going 7-15 overall in the two-year stint. The Matadores did make the playoffs both seasons but fell in the first round to Heritage in 2017 and Downey this past season.

In Moschetti’s last year, in 2016, he led La Mirada to a CIF Division 3 Championship game appearance where the Mats lost to Edison 44-24. In 2015 Moschetti guided the Matadores to the CIF Southeast Division title as they beat La Serna 45-20. They then went on to win the state title as well beating Campolindo 27-3.

He was named Mid Valley Sports Southeast Division Coach of the Year for 2015.

Moschetti, a La Mirada alum, spent nine years as the head coach in his first stint.

    Understand something folks: Bosco doesn’t recruit, it accepts applications. Ditto for Mater Dei. These behemoths have the ball rolling so forcefully, they don’t even have to listen to sob stories about tuition assistance; they just go to the next name on the list of applicants. Moschetti, by comparison, appreciates your mercenary services and will work to get you known by top colleges. All free of tuition. In these tough times, what’s not to like about Mike?

    The Moschetti apartments have been renovated and are ready to go in January! It was a two year process.

    Did not know he was AD at La Mirada. Did he fire Aguilar then hire himself. Maybe only way he was going to get another gig. LOL.

    Not to many people happy to see this hustler back in high school football. Especially Santa Fe people. Now if West Covina could lure Maggiore back, well now your talking.

    Something doesn’t sit right here. He left the program when it looked as if the talent was starting to run dry, handed over to one of his assistants to set him up for failure and then comes back 2 years later? Doesn’t seem like they gave Aguilar much of a fair shake; just an opportunity for Moschetti to get on his white horse and save the day.

    I would imagine the football folks at LM are euphoric over this news. The only thing that would be better is to hear that Kim Brooks is also coming back to do baseball again. At this time of year, when brotherhood and forgiveness fill the air, it’s time to bury the hatchet and bring this fellow back in all his boisterous glory.
