I spoke to San Marino High School Principal Loren Kleinrock this morning and he confirmed that former football coach Mike Mooney has resigned and the school is moving forward in the process to find his replacement.
The exact date of Mooney’s resignation is not known, but it came well before Christmas break. He was originally placed on administrative leave during the season. Kleinrock said the position is now officially open and the school has received about 15 applications thus far.
San Marino is putting together an interview committee and hopes to begin interviews Feb. 4. Kleinrock has confirmed there’s been interest in the position from coaches on last year’s staff.
Aram’s take: Sad. Bums me out on multiple levels. Coach Mooney was/is one of my favorite coaches and I have nothing but respect for him. Hope he lands on his feet. And San Marino holds a special place in my heart, having seen so many games there as a kid and recalling all the success the Titans had under the legendary Bill Maloney.
