Calvin Tang has been appointed head boys basketball coach at Los Osos. He replaces Dave Smith, the coach that built the program from its inception.
Tang, 34, spent the last four years at Hesperia, the last three heading the varsity program and the first assisting on the junior varsity level. His team was 61-24 in his three years including a still-in-tact 21-game Mojave River League win streak.
The Scorpions went 23-7 the past season, advancing to the CIF Southern Section Division 3A semifinal where they lost to Twentynine Palms 65-54.
Tang grew up in Riverside and played three years of basketball at Arlington. He went on to play at Sierra Community College in the more Northern part of the state.
He also spent four years as an assistant coach at Sierra after his playing eligibility expired.
From there he moved on to NCAA Division II Metropolitan State in Denver where he served as an assistant for two years, helping the team to postseason berths.
