(El Monte) – Arroyo has named Chuck Leonardis as its new head football coach the school announced Wednesday.

Leonardis, who has been at Arroyo as an assistant for the last five years coaching the offensive line, replaces Jim Singiser who stepped down after the season after 17 years at the helm.

“I think he’s more than ready. He knows the tradition and the expectations that come along with the title,” Singiser said. “He knows the kids, the infrastructure, etc. I’m excited for him, the program and what the next chapter has in store.”

Last year Arroyo went 5-6 overall and fell in the first round of the CIF Division 11 playoffs to Hemet 48-20.

    Facts!!!! Well when you do something you’re not suppose to do, you get punished correct or there is some type repercussion. I am sure coach meant well for his players but what he was doing did not sit right with parents and admin, so he was shown the door. Factual enough for you bud ???????

    I can’t remember when I was this juiced about a head coach hire. OK, considering what went on during Chuck’s time at Alhambra, maybe “juiced” is the wrong word, but you get my drift.
