Mystery at San Gabriel, all girls basketball coaches fired; school officials not explaining the reason why

San Gabriel High School athletic director Patty Hill confirmed Monday that the entire San Gabriel High School girls basketball coaching staff – from varsity to the freshman level – was fired after an incident during a junior varsity game against El Monte on Dec. 9, though Hill refused to give details.
Hill referred all questions to the Alhambra Unified School District, which didn’t return calls Monday. San Gabriel football coach Keith Jones subsequently took over as the girls varsity head coach on an interim basis, but has been replaced by Jennifer White, recently cleared by the Alhambra Unified School District to take over as the varsity coach.
It isn’t known how many coaches were fired and have been replaced. As recently as Dec. 18, San Gabriel canceled a junior varsity contest against South Pasadena due to a “lack of coaches,” according to South Pasadena athletic director Ralph Punaro.
