    Not sure who’s going to land the job at Whittier either, but the guy who gets it will be given an honorary Oscar for acting like he can work miracles at that school. The academy has named this the Ryan Bateman award.

    Who will Whittier hire as the new head football coach? A possibility ( this is my first comment on hiring new coaches) is a WHS Alumnus who is in his mid twenties . Very good player for Whittier few years ago. He then played for East LA College before earning football scholarship to Oklahoma Baptist University. His highlight films were very impressive . Great Kid and academically intelligent too

    If pensions were that big a consideration with 30 something age coaches there would be few D1 coaches at all in the privates. Most of these coaches mentioned are already well regarded in the classroom as well as on the field. Most schools would welcome them back with open arms and restored status if they left. Time for Mater Dei and the diocese to chose Respect and Responsibility over wins. BTW NFL coaches and NCAA D1 coaches keep getting younger.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Chastain as HC with Adrian Medrano as his OC and Marcel Perez as his DC would be a Trinity league caliber trio. Not saying it’s a done deal but it would be a cool thing to see.

    Thomas has had issues. Chastain is a no nonsense guy. MD needs coaches to restore image more than win games. MD had great season but not many rooting for them. More were hoping for jail time for players,coaches and admins from MD.

    Medrano is not leaving a public school for private school at this stage of his career because of many financial factors, pension being the biggest one. Now if you could teach at a public school and coach at a private school that might work if the schools are closed in proximity. I know that the MD job will pay close to $300,000, because the Servite job paid over $250,000 six years ago. Something to think about.

    The Mater Dei job is going to Troy Thomas, no matter who else is a “finalist.” Mater Dei’s new principal is the guy who hired Troy for his second stint with the Anaheim school, and the Monarchs’ new athletic director is one Joel Hartmann, also from Servite, who knows Thomas well. To suggest that MD, a school that is desperate to establish a clean image for its football operation, would take a chance on an unknown character is beyond ludicrous, no matter how hard one may wish for another outcome.

    Interesting. I believe Chastain was an asst. coach on ER’s Medrano’s staff while he was Bonita’s HC. Doubt he would leave ER even for that asst. coaching gig unless the pay is great. Also Medrano has said he is not into recruiting which is the big part of the job.

    Chuck Chastain from Norco is a finalist for the Mater Dei job. Word is that if he gets it is that his first choices for hires as assistant coaches are going to be some of our area HC’s.

    If we’re talking incompetent coaching hires, trying beating Santa Fe’s latest acquisition. The school is earnestly trying to emulate Keppel’s football model.

    The Matt V on his way to Baldwin Park. Not Mission Viejo but a good stepping stone for a year.

    It takes extra special effort to blow a 27-0 lead

    The Rams, like many Super Bowl winners, probably felt they could just go through the motions this year and still finish well. It doesn’t work that way, particularly in football, where extra effort born of hunger for winning usually prevails. McVay is a wizard with the chalkboard, but can he put that Vince Lombardi-type of desire into his players? That’s the pivotal question going into next season.
