(Whittier) – Louie Zamora, who was a former assistant, was named the head football coach at California Monday AD Jim Arnold confirmed.
Zamora was an assistant under Arnold at Cal in 2008 and 2009 and also served as defensive coordinator in 2014. He has also coached at the lower levels at the school over several years.
“He has stayed within our program for several years and has earned all of the players confidence. He has also been in several different programs and is completely qualified to take the next step to be a head coach,” Arnold said.
Zamora was on Arroyo’s staff as well in 2011 and ’12. “He was a great DL coach. One of the best assistants I’ve ever worked with,” said Arroyo HC Jim Singiser.
Zamora takes over for Kyle Trudell who stepped down after the season. The Condors finished 4-6 last year and missed the playoffs.
