Darren Spence Takes Over at Azusa

By Tim Peterson

(Azusa) – Darren Spence, the former head coach at North Salinas, has been named the new head coach at Azusa. 

Spence spent four years at North Salinas going 16-26 overall before being dismissed after the 2017 season. His best season was 2015 when he guided the Vikings to a league title and a 9-3 record.

Spence, who will also take over the duties of Athletic Director, replaces Robert Beltran who was let go earlier this year. The Aztecs went 4-6 overall last year and 3-2 in the Montview League.

Azusa opens the 2019 season Friday night August 30 at Vasquez.

    Maybe the guy loves football and coaching; he probably just wants to compete and Azusa is a good place for that bcus league teams have been very weak

    rider, phil and others that criticize the program and how terrible it will be; the league is very weak. Any debate on that? Nogales may be it/or will workman staff do it again after losing best, by far ,qb in league and best.maybe , running back in league when healthy; he was for 4 games I think. great receiver back but will qb be able to get him the ball. Sierra Vista is poor, gladstone I don’t know; they did beat Nogales at rest last year. bad league so truth is ‘if Azusa wins/ makes playoffs’ the comments on the coach not knowing and all that about principal and superintendent may not have anything to do with the teams football. I think head coaches like it more when administrators just mind own job; and keep distance from the field. Usually they do not know much

    Phil has a problem with former coach maybe because his son could not play because of his grades so blame the coach!

    Stay thirsty, my friends, but always be sure to proofread your material before you send it out. Pay close attention to spellcheck, and follow all grammatical rules. It’s also OK to ask for help when necessary.
    Never lose that passion for high school football, or for life in general.

    He also posts his comments in English, except for the bad words.

    Principal the same, Superintendent the same, teachers have given up, and gang violence at an all time high. Everyone looks the other way. Football coach will have no support! Disaster!!

    Hey Bro, if you’re going to clown on someone for not knowing how to use a “space bar,” I advise you check yourself before you wreck yourself. Allow me you help you out a little bro. Phil didn’t “barley past High School,” but it’s possible Phil barely passed high school (no need to capitalize). Lol
