(El Monte) – Johnny Argo has been named the new head football coach at Arroyo he confirmed Wednesday.
Argo has been an assistant at Arroyo for the last three years coaching wide receivers and running backs. Argo has had previous stops at Baldwin Park, South Hills and Arcadia. Argo is an Arcadia alum.
Argo takes over for Chuck Leonardis who stepped down after the season to spend more time with family. The Knights won the Mission Valley League last year with a 5-0 record and went 9-4 overall. They lost in the CIF Division 12 Semi-Finals to Lancaster 20-17.
Argo is working on putting together his staff. “We’re still working out a few things but we’re getting ready to go. We’ll be out there soon,” Argo said.

I thought this announcement would bring many more comments?
Where did it say he’s never been a head coach?
The last 3 “never been a head coach” hires at Arroyo collectively won over 70% of their games with 25+ league titles and missed CIF playoffs one time since 1980
Maybe we can see if Argo can do what Arroyo expects
When does Singiser come out of retirement again and become the DC?
SG lost a lot of seniors, they will struggle, but to what extent? I agree there will be more interest in the school after winning a CIF title.
They should strive for first or second place in Almont League. That would be an up and coming accomplishment.
I am interested in getting an update on SG after their CIF year, perhaps getting some exposure to these up and coming programs after a good year allows them build off that momentum. Get the school talking about the program as local news check in on them (Pasadena star news, and SGV Tribune, Midvalley) I know you guys have your work cut out but I just thought it would be a cool proposal.
Leroy. Shut Up fool!
Lets do this coach, screw the na sayers
Best of luck to Johnny and crew as they take the reins of a program that appears to be in very good shape. This man’s familiarity with the Leonardis approach ensures a certain continuity for the Knights’ program.
Losing is not an option.
disgusting hire. guaranteed to ruin a storied program. 0-20 fired in 2 years book it.
From T. Peterson: Oh I got it now. That’s just your schtick. Good to know. At least now we know not to take any of your comments serious. They’re all irrelevant.
