Miggy Melendez says Alhambra names Joe Kanach new head football coach …

Alhambra has filled its open varsity football head coach job with Joe Kanach, who coached Hawthorne to a 5-5 record this past season, according to the Star-News’ Miggy Melendez.

Miguel said he spoke with Alhambra athletic director Jerry De Santis, who today confirmed the hiring. Kanach replaces Lou Torres, who was 13-9 in two seasons after replacing long-time Moors coach Gil Ruedaflores.

Aram’s take: Uh yeah, I have no clue who Kanach is, but he steps into a decent situation because the Moors have quite a bit returning and may actually be a slight early favorite in the Almont over defending champ San Gabriel.
