Flintridge Prep announced Friday that it has hired former Crespi standout running back Russell White as its new football coach.
Interestingly, Flintridge Prep announced earlier this offseason that it is moving from 11-man football to 8-man. White was an All-American running back at Cal in the early 90s. He will also serve as assistant athletic director.
A source told me this morning that the Bonita job has re-opened. What that source didn’t tell me but another source did is that the Bearcats had their man (he was a coach in South Orange County last season) … but their man tried to boot Rey Medina out of his spot as defensive coordinator and that principal Derek Bub (former Chino Hills head coach) didn’t like how it was handled. So after Bub lays into the new coach about it, the new coach resigns hours later.
And before any of this happened, supposedly, Glendora assistant Brandon Rohrer had the job but backed out, a source also said.
