Anthony White has resigned from Temple City after one season to become the next head coach at Buena Park. White, who replaced Randy Backus, went 5-4-1 and missed the playoffs in his lone season.
White graduated from Rosemead and played at Utah. He had assistant coaching stints at PCC, Wilson and Rosemead under Matt Koffler before Temple City gave him his first head varsity job.
Aram’s take: My poor alma mater. First Mike Mooney leaves for San Marino, then half the city council goes on trial and now one of the area’s hottest young coaching commodities jets after one season. I don’t blame White. He lives in Buena Park, so it makes sense. Plus, he joins the Fullerton school district, which is supposedly lucrative as school districts go. So where do the Rams go from here? Spring ball is nearing. Spring passing league is nearing. And now the administration is scrambling for a replacement. Fortunately for them, there are a lot of good names out there.
