(San Marino) – Justin Mesa, currently the recruiting coordinator at the University of Wyoming, is set to take over as the new head football coach at San Marino sources confirmed Wednesday.
Mesa has had numerous stops including administrative and coaching roles on the college level at Dixie State and USC. He was also the offensive coordinator and the quarterbacks coach at Loyola High School in Los Angeles for three years. Before going to Loyola Mesa was at USC from 2008 to 2013 where he served as graduate assistant, tight ends coach and offensive assistant working with quarterbacks and wide receivers. Mesa graduated from USC in 2007.
Mesa will replace Mike Hobbie, who stepped down after a successful eight-year run that included two Rio Hondo League championships, a CIF title and a State playoff victory in 2015.
Mesa’s hiring is contingent on a clearing process which should be completed this week.
