SBVC looking for head football coach

The San Bernardino Valley College football team is in a bind.

The Wolverines are looking for a head coach and it is already April so finding a successor to Pat Meech probably won’t be easy.

Meech, who headed the program the last five years, has stepped down from the head job but will remain on staff as an assistant. He also is on the faculty as a physical education instructor. The change in his job status was approved at the Board of Trustees meeting Thursday night.

Athletic director Dave Rubio said Meech is still at the school teaching and recruiting so he doesn’t expect the program to miss a beat in that respect.

But who knows if the players being brought in will fit the system of whatever coach is brought it.

The Wolverines will enter the 2009 campaign riding a 15-game losing streak. Given the recent setback they may be hard-pressed to break into the win column next season either.
