Sources have confirmed that former Los Altos coach Greg Gano, who won four championships at Los Altos, has applied for the head coaching position at Wilson. It could be an ideal fit for Gano, who had a tough time at Damien and most recently Tustin, where he didn’t finish the 2013 season, resigning after an 0-4 start.
First thoughts: Wilson would be nuts not to hire Gano. You put Gano back in the SGV at a public school like Wilson, who competes in the Valle Vista league and is attractive from an academic standpoint for potential transfers and skies the limit. Plus, you’re hiring the former head coach of an old rival, which makes it even more appealing for the Wildcats. You want to instantly raise your street cred, this is the hire you make. Sources also suggest that Nogales could be appealing to Gano, but that the position may not become available. Athletic Director Bruce Alley, who took over the team just weeks before the 2013 season on an interim basis, is considering remaining on as the permanent coach.
