Pachot named interim coach at Rialto pending board approval

The Rialto football job, which reopened last week with the resignation of Don Markham, has not been reposted, but former RHS offensive coordinator Gavin Pachot has been named the interim coach pending school board approval according to Rialto Unified School District Director of Communications Syeda Jafri.

Pachot has served time as an assistant at Redlands East Valley, Fontana and Rialto, spending the last three seasons with the Knights under former coach Eric Rodriguez.

As for the permanent position, it will be posted in the near future, with in-district applicants getting first priority.

“We’ll open it up in the district, see who applies and move on from there,” Jafri said.
