Former Cal State Dominguez Hills BB coach Damaine Powell hired at St. Paul

Former Cal State Dominguez Hills men’s basketball coach Damaine Powell has been hired as St. Paul High’s new boys basketball coach, athletic director Casey Morales confirmed Tuesday.
“To find someone with the experience and credentials he has is tremendous,” said Morales. “To have a guy like that … is something we’re really thrilled with.”
Powell coached CSUDH for nine seasons after leading Compton College to a pair of state community college championships. He also played and coached at USC.
He replaces Shawn Clingan, who stepped down following the 2013-14 season. The Swordsmen struggled to a 3-23 record last season, including a 1-9 mark in the Camino Real League. Next season, St. Paul will play in the Santa Fe League.
According to Morales, Powell has also accepted a full-time teaching position on the Santa Fe Springs campus.

    Poor Powell! He must be desperate to take a job at St Pauls because knowing the are well he will not get any kids there. He better bring in out of area kids because none of the local studs want to play at that dump. College coach college coach there. The structure of St Paul’s is a mess and the school will fall apart soon. What the need to do is replace all the 90 year old teachers the admininistration and invest in an air conditioning unit. That school ran very poorly. I just heard they are still in debt for the football field. All area kids should look elsewhere nothing but dreamers at SP.
