Colony coach Matt Bechtel steps down …

The Bulletin’s Clay Fowler reports that Matt Bechtel resigned on Tuesday after two seasons as Colony High School’s head football coach, according to Colony athletic director Jaime Sandoval. Bechtel went 18-6 in his first two seasons as a head coach, leading the Titans to a Mt. Baldy League championship last season before reaching the CIF-SS Central Division semifinals.

“I think some other opportunities have been out there for him, particularly in the last two or three months,” Sandoval said. “I think it was a tough decision for him to leave considering he came in with such a vision for this program and the amount of work he put into it. But ultimately I think he needed to look at those other opportunities.”

  • WTF?

    Actually, during spring practice. They started on the 23rd of April.

  • Well, then it seems even odder.

  • 238

    Conflict with administration.

  • Bummer….

    Wow, he is a solid coach. Here is a scenario that could play out real quick. If he is gone for sure, he will become the new Offensive Coordinator at Damien and be in line to take over for Gano. He could instill the spread offense which they need with their tools !

  • That’s awful if it’s a conflict with admin. Bechtel is a very legit coach. Any word on who takes over?

    BTW, I don’t see anybody going to Damien and calling plays. Gano is bent on being the play-caller this year and going forward.

  • Bobbins stein

    Crazy, isn’t he a teacher? Maybe Summit? He would have been great at Arcadia before Long

  • read the whole article

    Aram put down the all you can eat buffet and re-read the article written yesterday about Bechtel, it states he’s going to STAY thru spring practice! Please acknowledge the fact you got yesterdays news from the prog-bull…..don’t act like you”discovered” this on your own, what do they call it when you use the written work(clay fowler, daily bulletin, may 2,2012) of another? a P me michelin man

  • FC, Damien Dad, or whatever you’re calling yourself today.

    Had no clue Clay wrote something about it.

    But ….you feel free ….to tell me what ….part of Clay’s story I ….plagiarized.

  • get a smaller spoon

    I guess multiple sources means you read Clays article dated May 2……..just typical weak azzz, lazy,lack of ethics non-reporting……you get the idea

  • There you have it. Any reporter using sources is now lazy. Haha. Why are you on here if you don’t like the lazy reporting? Oh that’s right, it’s your man crush on me. Well, I appreciate the hits.

  • sip it thru a straw big boy

    I get sources could be reading anothers article and then calling it your own…on second, no you can’t yesterdays news is yesterdays news..don’t cliam it as “your” story, a day after it’s in your sister publication…..just weak, which is what I come to expect from you, professionally

  • Where did I call it my own? Where did I claim it was my story?

    It’s cute to throw out accusations, but there’s nothing to back them up AS USUAL.

  • Middy

    Is there going to be a teaching job? If so, this is going to be a good deal. They should win the League every year until they get re-leagued.

  • 238

    It is highly unlikely that Aram even read Fowler’s blog because there is no point in doing so. Fowler at the Bulletin almost never posts anything new, so why would he even go to that web page? I would guess that the SGV Tribune Prep page gets 50 times the traffic the Bulletin’s does because Aram, Fred, and the gang actually report on things that are going on in the area, unlike the Bulletin that scores on a blog about every 2-3 weeks.

    People in the SGV should feel lucky that you have bloggers and reporters in your area that actually cover prep sports. Yes, they seem to give some sports and schools more coverage than others, as does any paper. At least all are covered a little bit.

  • Karma?

    Firstly, Fowler and the Daily Bulletin have pitiful high school coverage, this coming from a Claremont alum. and Rancho Cuc. resident. That’s why I read Aram daily.

    Secondly, I wonder what QB Simpko is going to do after abandoning Claremont last year, 2 weeks before the season started to play for Bechtel, who is now abandoning him? Transfer again?

  • Not So Fast My Friend

    238 said it was a conflict with the administration, I’m guessing that’s exactly what it was. A coach doesn’t bail on his team after taking them to the semi finals, much less be at a program for only two years. I think the AD is full of foul air putting this on Bechtel alone. Didnt there principal come from Rancho Cucamonga? Anyone think this wasn’t a force out?

  • D-Mo

    I got it straight from a horse’s ass (you know who you are) that he left because his assistant coaches were not being hired as teachers. Sounds weak, but that’s what the old nag said.
    Simpko isn’t going anywhere, right Mr Ed?

  • sources, who needs sources?

    my sources told me the Lakers won on Tuesday night… ohh shiat! that was in the paper, really? a JOURNALIST would have asked his source, how did you come upon this information? how do you know this to be true? then the pimply faced freshman says it happened last week or I read it on the Prog/Bull…….well, anyway, that’s what a JOURNALIST would do……….

  • Not goong to Damien…….

    …….farther south.

  • n..o….w…i…t…’…s…..m…e…

    Gee Aram and I’m obsessed?

    Just checking in to see where Scoby is going to school and I see I’m on your mind again. WOW!

    I do have to give credit where credit is due. Who ever is rattling your cage or using my (…..) techique or _____Fan or oh Geezzzus even I’m doing it (….)….LOL….OH NO….I’M…O…U…T…O…F…C….O…N…T…R….O…L….L…..O……L…..

    Well I guess it’s a compliment of sorts. Either way it’s entertaining to read and see you make a complete a$$ of yourself, especially when I know someone is getting you to lash out indiscriminately. Too funny.

    What did you write on the other thread? “it could be one of two people. MS or one of the Mid Valley News guys…or ____” That’s at least 3 stupid!

  • Dog House

    Bechtel did not leave Colony for petty reasons. He is a legit coach at a small program who was offered some great ooportunities. Bottomline. Colony staff will be the first to tell you that Bechtel is a first class guy in and out of the classroom and gives a 100% to his teaching & coaching. The staffs reaction to him leaving was he deserved way better than what he was getting at Colony and are excited for him.

    Damien had their chance to hire the former alumni Bechtel and went the Gano route instead. Bechtel went to Colony with an 18-6 record including wins over Sierra league opponents. What is a turned down alumni to do to get the attention of Damien High School you say? Chino Hills Huskies. Look for transfers headed south to join him. Bechtel has a gift of getting his kids recruited and the area is buzzing about him and how can you not? Bechtel had more DIV I & II scholarship recruits on his team then the whole Sierra League. Look for Chino Hills to be the powerhouse this upcoming season. Yes, I’m calling it now. You haven’t seen this guy in action. He is a student of the game and understands how to distribute talent.

  • Hmmm, very interesting

    Dog House,
    I too have heard Bechtel is headed to CH to be the new OC. That was the topic of conversation with some Rancho coaches yesterday. It would be a great pick up for CH as Lou Randall has left CH to take over @ Don Lugo.

  • Schizoid

    I just wonder what the coaching situation is like over at Los Osos? Coach Martinez was contemplating retirement then stayed on when Bechtel decided to split because Martinez stayed afterall…..Osos is not doing as well as they used to and Maybe coach Martinez is gonna be on the move out soon????

  • Scout

    Matt Bechtel is a hell of a coach and a stand up guy. Any school would be lucky to have him. No one does more for his players to get them recruited and teach them about the game. Damien blew it with not picking him up when they had the chance. Maybe after they get tired of paying a ridiculous salary for mediocre results they will get things right and snatch him from where ever he ends up.
