Bloomington on verge of getting new football coach approved

With delays due to spring break, Bloomington appears on the verge of naming its new head football coach.
The Colton district board agenda for Thursday lists Brian W. Kidd as the selection. The agenda also lists him as a walk-on and a new hire.

At this time, it is not known whether it is the same Brian Kidd who used to be the head coach at Carter, most recently in 2007.
In addition, the agenda lists that Ryan Smalls will return as Grand Terrace coach for a second season. Smalls was the Titans’ coach last year, but his position was opened up after the season because he is not a teacher at the school.

VIDEOS: Carter’s Lokeni Toailoa picks UCLA


Carter coach Alex Pierce talks before Lokeni’s commitment


It may be hard to see on the video, but Lokeni had 2 hats in the bag: one USC and one UCLA


Lokeni Toailoa talks about picking UCLA. He showed some maturity in not getting too tied to the coaching staff, because he knows one or more of those coaches might not be around in the fall of 2016.

Bloomington High football coach update

No word quite yet on who the new Bloomington High football coach will be, but there is an update.

Athletic director Chris Brickley said that a candidate has been picked and the school is waiting on board approval before an official announcement can be made. There is a board meeting on Thursday, but the school did not get the candidate submitted on time to make it on this week’s agenda.

So, with spring break looming, the next school board meeting is April 16. But it’s a lock to be on that board agenda, because Brickley said all the pre-screening requirements have been taken care of. Brickley reports that until then, he has been opening up the weight room for voluntary conditioning and lifting and about 40 players have been there every day, a good sign to be sure.

The position has been vacant since Marcos Fino stepped down following three consecutive 1-9 seasons. I could be wrong, but if there are pre-screening required, which includes fingerprints, would it not suggest that the future Bloomington coach is not already a district employee or at least not a coach in the district?
