Scott Morrison has resigned as varsity football head coach at Workman, and according to a source, it’s because he will be named the next head coach at La Puente, replacing Brandon Rohrer, who left for Etiwanda.
Word of Morrison’s resignation came from a job posting on a website that Workman is looking for a new football coach. A source says that he will take over at La Puente, which is also in the Hacienda-La Puente Unified School District.
Morrison was formerly the head coach at Damien before being let go after the 2008 season. He took over at Workman in 2010 and went 7-23 in three seasons.
Aram’s take: This one’s a real doozy. So, Morrison is going to leave Workman for rival La Puente. That has to go over real well with the Lobos. Talk about uncomfortable. Many would argue, though, that LP is a much better football program and Morrison is more likely to have success and more talent to work with there. If you’ll recall, Morrison was rumored to be going to both Los Altos and Wilson, which are in the same district, after job openings at both schools in recent years. Now, he’s off to LP. This now means that there’s two jobs open in the Montview — Gladstone and Workman. And here’s the good news for all you interested coaches, the Workman job will come with a teaching position.
