(Diamond Bar) – Matt Castaneda, who stepped down as the head football coach at Rosemead Wednesday, has been named the new head coach at Diamond Bar pending board approval.
“I’ll teach and coach at Diamond Bar. I’m excited to get a chance to work for and with such a great administration and district. The principal and AD have been wonderful during this entire interview process,” Castaneda said.
Castaneda, who was 22-20 overall with two playoff appearances during his four seasons at Rosemead, takes over a Diamond Bar team that went 5-6 overall last year and finished second in the Hacienda League. The Brahmas lost to Victor Valley 55-36 in the first round of the CIF Division 12 Playoffs. He succeeds Jeff Reitz who resigned after the season.
“The whole DBHS community really came to together and showed their commitment to their athletics and academics and we both ended being a great fit. I am blessed and honored for the opportunity,” Castaneda added.
