Bonita head coach update … interesting stuff …

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 now the search begins again …
