Damien head coach Greg Gano has let go of longtime sidekick and defensive coordinator Lee Fair and replaced him with John Carroll.
Fair had been Gano’s defensive coordinator for several years, dating back to Gano’s successful run at Los Altos. Carroll has previously been Damien’s defensive coordinator.
Gano is also reportedly looking for an offensive line and possible a quarterback coach.
Aram’s take: Fair took his share of criticism after Sparty had a costly breakdown in the final seconds in its loss to Chino Hills. Let us not forget, though, that Fair had a heckuva career and had orchestrated some monster defenses in his day. Carroll is the son of Damien AD Tom Carroll, who is a big fan of these blogs (not really). Anyway, word is the kids really like Carroll and his history with Damien ought to come in handy. As a side note, I truly hope Damien is more visible on the passing circuit this summer. I wanna see Sparty throw against CO, Amat, Monrovia and so on. They have the QB and skills to do it, so let’s do it!
