Chino football coach Setlich resigns with 2-18 mark

Chino High School football coach Greg Setlich resigned Wednesday faced with principal Adam Bailey’s decision “to go in a different direction.” The Chino graduate who greatly improved the Don Lugo program in his previous stop, won his first two games at Chino last season but lost 18 straight before resigning.

“I knew going in it was a struggling situation, but I never envisioned going 0-18,” Setlich told the Daily Bulletin’s Louis Brewster. “Chino has little tolerance for losing and rightfully so. There were a lot of reasons for the lack of on-field success. It was an honor and a privilege to coach at two great schools in the district.”

In his 29-year coaching career, Setlich also was head coach at Pico Rivera El Rancho and San Dimas. He left San Dimas after one season to return to Chino as an assistant to John Monger and to work with his late father Pete, also a one-time Chino head coach. That season resulted in a CIF-SS championship for the Cowboys.
