FROM IN THE HUDDLE: Diamond Bar has named Marcus Hughes, who most recently was head coach at Cornwall Central High in New York, as its new varsity football head coach.

    Don’t think it’s a good choice, should of found a Coach who was local. No kids are going to want to play for an unknown Coach from out of state. They should tried harder to get that Mike Johnson. He would of brought in some talent.

      If you actually knew any of the kids on team then you would be wise to rescind your comment!

    Has a good track record . But is he going to be able to get the best staff around him not knowing anything about the coaches in the area . Is he just going to keep same staff .

    You think they told him that their best player graduated(tyler brown) and their best junior(broadus) transfered out before he signed his life away. Lol This isn’t the same team that went to 2nd round of playoffs last year.

      They still have quite a few playmakers such as Noodles, Peterson, and Bell

      Brown was certainly a baller, but Broadus was far from the teams best Jr. Bell and Noodles are both much better play makers and neither played much at all last year. In addition to that we have back probably the SGV’s best QB for next season as well as the transfer return of 6’6″ Brandon Rice.
