The beat goes on, Aram reporting that Mountain View football coach James Wilson and Schurr coach Ben Negrete both resign

Mountain View coach James Wilson resigns: “It just kind of felt right,” Wilson said. “It’s been seven years. I was struggling with it when the season ended. It just kind of became a strain. I moved to Anaheim two years ago and with the drive and my kids getting older, it just felt like the right time.”

Schurr Coach Ben Negrete resigns: Schurr High School varsity football coach Ben Negrete became the latest area coach to call it quits. Negrete announced his retirement on Wednesday.
Negrete, who was the Spartans’ head coach for four years and won three Almont League championships in that time, decided to take an early retirement from teaching and has resigned his post as head coach.

    VVL aint gonna like this post but last month I blogged that one solution could be that experienced head football coaches unionize in order to battle their own teachers unions. Once schools realize how much they need real leaders fully credentialed and trained, things may change. When attendance at games drop, when kids transfer to solid programs,when schools hire dangerous head and assistant coachesand disciplinary problems with players with guys with no experience on how to handle them then maybe the community and schools will decide they have to find a better way to support these men. I fully believe that these coaches are burned out but its not from coaching. It’s from all the other stuff that surrounds coaching that they get no help, money or time to do it in. Schools all over the SGV have had major problems with their walk on coaches but have swept the stories under the rug and hidden them. Some stories have made it out like ER and MV but not many. Those stories will leak out in the coming weeks.If you have a great coach and pay him the school makes money. If you don’t the school loses money and reputation. Texas and Florida get it we don’t.

    WHat happened at MV? I though there were no problems. I knew there is no talent

  • WOW B Ball, Wilson 53-50 over Northview in OT

    at Northview a great back and forth game, with 6.5 seconds left in OT, Northview inbounds to (guess who) T Francis with Wilson up 51-50, JR Nelson steals the ball from #15 and goes the length of the court with a layup, final Wilson 53-50, #15 made all of his 18 points in the second half with superb long shots but came up short in the end, VVL will be interesting this year (again)

  • Front Runner

    Riddle me this, what DC is the front runner for the Schurr spot.

    Give you a hint, Coach Negrete has been playing to step down for mouths.

    One of the top DC’s in the area.

    Works in the same school district

    Pete over at Montobello isn’t going to be happy

    The next Schurr Head Coach will be D.C. Marco Ramirez
