UPDATE: Spoke to Coach Morrison and he said “Right now, I’m not interested. With that said it would be irresponsible of me not to explore any situation that’s out there. Nor have I been contacted by anybody from the school district or school. It’s going to take a lot to beat the job I have now because I have a great administration and our kids are getting after it in the weight room, and we’re gonna be better in a year and even better than that in two years.
Sources say that both Workman coach Scott Morrison and La Puente coach Brandon Rohrer have been approached by the district to see if they’d be interested. The feeling among several coaches who have applied is that the district is simply making the “accepting resumes” process a token gesture, but really has its heart set on either Morrison or Rohrer. Obviously, if either left, that would leave an opening at Workman or La Puente, but it’s unclear if those applying for the Wilson job would have interest in working elsewhere in the district, as in the Montview League. The rumors aren’t going away at Los Altos that head coach Jim Arellanes will not be back next season. I have it from multiple sources that Arellanes is looking into jobs elsewhere and much of this has to do with Los Altos reportedly not being able to bring Arellanes back next season. I’m not sure I understand why that would be, but the reports of Arellanes looking elsewhere appear to be very real. Rumors are also swirling about South Hills coach Steve Bogan being interested in the Maranatha job. I’ve heard from multiple sources that there’s a lot too this and something could happen soon. Obviously, making the transition from a public school to a private will require plenty of salary/retirement tinkering, but Damien was able to pull off something similar two years ago with Greg Gano. Yes, it’s scary to think what Maranatha might become under a coach like Bogan. I mean very, very scary. And that would be bad news for the schools who currently pillage the Pasadena area for talent. Lastly, former San Marino quarterback Dan Loyd reportedly has dropped out of the running for the San Marino job. John Tuttle, who has coached at San Marino previously, is looking like the front runner. Enjoy the Super Bowl.
