Did Temple City High do the right thing in firing Backus?

The question is simple. Give a yes or no and elaborate your answer in the comment section below.

Temple City High athletic director John Van De Veere was asked whether the current coaching staff would stay in place.

“I have not talked to those individuals yet but I’ve heard that Tim Loya mentioned to the team he was not going to return due to family commitments and have not talked to Marty Valdes,” Van De Veere said. “The junior varsity coaches would like to remain on staff.”

I asked the same question to Randy Backus and he said he doubts anybody would stay.

If that’s the case, Temple City High not only has to find a new head varsity football coach but they’d also have to find an entire coaching staff including the at the lower level.

With spring practice not that far away, does this decision not end up hurting the players more?
