With all talent being equal, who would you want?

Don’t care which schools you think recruit or not, I want to know who you think is the best X’s and O’s guy. The best motivator. The one you want in crunch time when championships are on the line. The one who gets the most out of his talent. The East San Gabriel Valley is filled with a deep talent pool of coaches, so without trying to list them in any particular order, these are who I’d consider the Tribune’s Top Ten with all the aforementioned considered.

Steve Bogan (South Hills) – Always in the hunt, and he’s from Edgewood. How can you go wrong?
Darryl Thomas (Covina) – Three CIF semifinal appearances since 2000.
Greg Gano (Los Altos) – Followed DeSpain and created own legendary status.
Lou Farrar (Charter Oak) – He’s “Old School” and “Old School” works.
Mike Maggiore (West Covina) – Giving it up to another Edgewood alum who also owns a CIF title.
Eric Podley (Bonita) – Nobody underestimates his coaching ability.
Mark Pasquarella (Glendora) – Look where Glendora was before his arrival.
Terry Roche (Chino Hills) – Worked magic at Diamond Bar, doing same with Huskies.
Mark Verti (Bishop Amat) – Toughest job in SGV.
Jim Singiser (Arroyo) – Won or shared four of last five Mission Valley League titles.
