Some of you will say thanks for telling us what we already know. To them I say nobody likes a smart*ss. Anyway, this is more for my east-of-the-605 and New York readership. Mike Mooney is considering taking the vacant San Marino job and has sent out feelers about a potential coaching staff should he decide to do it, according to sources.
Mooney’s strong run at Temple City is well documented and he also had a big influence at San Marino in recent seasons as an assistant to D.R. Moreland, who resigned last week to further his education.
Mooney, who played at USC after graduating from Temple City, is currently an assistant principal at San Marino.
Aram’s take: Thanks a lot, Temple City. Here’s the guy who should still be your coach weighing whether to take the San Marino job because that school somehow found the wisdom to let him do both. Meanwhile, Temple City is coachless and exhausting every method to open some type of teaching position to get a coach in there before kickoff against Arroyo in September. As a sportswriter, I’m hoping Mooney decides to take the gig because he’d be great to have in the area again as a head man. And one last thing, I brokered the Mooney-Gano peace accord at CIF offices in 2006. It’s still one of my biggest accomplishments in life.
