Cajon, one of the more successful and stable athletic programs in San Bernardino County, has had to hire three new head coaches in recent months.
Two down, one to go.
Cajon hired Robert Grande, an assistant last year, as its new head baseball coach. Grande replaces Jon Austin, who stepped down after after 16 seasons and a 259-165 record. Athletic Director Rich Imbriani had indicated after Austin resigned that there were several candidates already on the coaching staff.
Previously, Imbriani hired John Anderson to replace John Chamberlain to coach water polo, after Chamberlain left Cajon to take the athletic director job at Indian Springs, Anderson’s former job. Anderson previously coached water polo at Arroyo Valley.
One position remains open: softball, after Jerry Tivey resigned after the season to pursue other interests.
“I’m still taking applications,” Imbriani said.
