After a tough year in her only season on the job, Bishop Amat coach basketball coach Treana Allen isn’t returning. Bishop Amat struggled to one of its worst records in decades, finishing 7-19 and 0-8 in league.
Allen had replaced longtime coaching legend Richard Wiard, who won 466 games in his 19-year career, including five CIF championships, five Southern California Regional championships and two state championships.
For those wondering if the school will possibly reach out to Wiard to return, don’t bet it, not while the current administration is in charge.
Wiard will be at Duarte this season as an assistant to his son Scott Wiard, who was named the head coach.
Bishop Amat posted on the CIF-SS website that it is currently accepting applications for its next coach.
Who will be the next girls basketball coach at Bishop Amat? I would look at former Diamond Ranch coach Mike James. http://t.co/WwPGVzu7aW
