Above are two pictures, top one is of Redlands East Valley girls athletic director Rhonda Fouch and boys basketball coach Bill Berich, posing with Berich’s trophy that he received Wednesday  for reaching 300 wins and the second, of course is a closeup of the trophy.

Berich actually reached 300 wins last year. But Fouch explained that they wanted to verify some records before getting the trophy. So Wednesday’s win over Cajon was actually Berich’s 320th in his career. “You’re almost at 400 now,” Fouch said.

Arroyo Valley looking for new boys basketball coach

The search is underway at Arroyo Valley for a new boys basketball  coach after coach Gerry Wright has taken a job as the head coach at Barstow College.

The hiring was mentioned by San Bernardino Valley College’s athletics twitter account and also confirmed by Arroyo Valley athletic director Matt Howell. Wright was also previously the head coach at SBVC.

According to maxpreps.com, Wright was the head coach at Arroyo Valley the last four years, leading the Hawks to no league titles, but reaching the playoffs in each of the four years. He was only the second coach in school history, succeeding Scott Smith.

Howell said they are in the process of hiring Wright’s replacement.

Johnson out as athletic director at Eisenhower, resigns as boys basketball coach

From Staff Writer Clay Fowler:

Decorated coach Steve Johnson will not return as Eisenhower High School’s athletic director or boys basketball coach this coming school year, according to Rialto Unified School District director of communications Syeda Jafri.

The former Sun Coach of the Year returned to his athletic director position briefly after recovering from gunshot wounds suffered Jan. 21 at an inner-city park in San Bernardino.

The 47-year-old Johnson was not asked to return as athletic director by newly appointed Eisenhower principal Scott Sparks. Johnson chose not to return as boys basketball coach for a program he turned into one of the area’s best over the last 19 years.

“Both the new Rialto and Eisenhower principals opened the athletic directors’ positions up going toward a different direction,” Jafri said. “Mr. Johnson chose not to return to coach basketball for next school year. The district has not opened the position yet.”

Sparks was not available for comment. Johnson did not respond to phone messages.

Demetrius Walker, former Fontana High basketball player transfers to Grand Canyon

Former Fontana High School basketball player Demetrius Walker, who played at the University of New Mexico last season, has transferred to Grand  Canyon University in Arizona.

Grand Canyon, which will compete in its first season in the Western Athletic Conference this year, is coached by former NBA player Dan Majerle.

“We are excited to have a player of Demetrius’ ability that has played at both New Mexico and Arizona State,” said Majerle in a press release. “It is good to have him here at GCU, as he brings with him a lot of experience and can score the basketball. He will be big for our team next season having a guy that we can go to. ”

Last season, Walker, a 6–foot-2 guard, averaged 5.0 points and 15.4 minutes per game for New Mexico, the Mountain West Conference champions. Walker graduated from New Mexico in May and will pursue a graduate degree from Grand Canyon.
