Naturally, Monrovia is being very tight lipped about the goings on surrounding its head coach search. So, that means I have piece together whatever information I can and pass it along with the best degree of confidence possible.
Underwhelmed — Evidently, Monrovia officials weren’t wowed by the first batch of interviews/candidates. From what I hear, this means that none of the coaches already in the program will be getting the job.
Reaching out — Because Monrovia officials weren’t too excited about their first attempt, they started reaching out to coaches they thought might be a good fit. There’s been some dialogue with some very interesting and well-known names, from what I hear and now there’s going to be another round of interviews (which may have already just happened).
Things to consider — There is some uncertainty with this job because of the chance Monrovia gets a serious bump up in playoff division next month. The new coach likely won’t be running roughshod over the Mid-Valley Division and if the program has some lean years in terms of playoff success, what toll will that take on the talent base? I’ve also heard the frosh team this past fall was nothing write home about, especially numbers-wise.
