Any word on possible coaching changes since it's been a couple of weeks now since the end of the season for most schools?
Here were things I had picked up over the season during lots of old man gossip. Any other coaching situations worth talking about? I've only tried to identify situations where there are issues that I have heard about from other families, coaches, or seen discussed on this board.
Parents in the program have not been happy. it's not just the varsity team's performance, but influential lower level parents have been unhappy with the overall running of the program in general. It's always tough having a successful local collegiate coach as a parent, but I think their current coach is in over is head there relative to parental expectations.
Is this going to be the year where they decide to part ways with Morris? They had some quality freshman play varsity for them and contribute, which is great experience but can it be perceived as finally being the turn for Servite into putting a team on the court that is competitive within their league? Or does admin even care to put forth the effort/money?
Coach departs right at end of season after a pretty successful year given they lived and died by the 3. Who takes this job and gets a new gym out of it, all while having to play in the very competitive Freeway League?
Roelen has been pretty vocal about his displeasure with admin since his return, while at the same time his son played on jv this past season. That could go either way but I bet he hangs out till his son graduates.
Is Yosh going to continue? He's getting up there in years and has appeared to relinquish more and more to his assistants. I personally have always liked the guy, but he has been there for a very long time and a change might be good for everyone.
There was a lot of talk about this being the final season for Nordstrom. They ended up having a good season in my opinion, but what was the expectation? Was a quarterfinal appearance in 2AA enough?
Is O'Brien returning? Their interim club guy inherited a tough situation, does he stay if O'Brien decides he can't physically coach anymore. I hope he does, one of the best in OC.
Their parents are rough and have unreal expectations, while at the same time I would argue that with all the players that choose to go to Yorba Linda instead of Esperanza, Esperanza consistently outplays Yorba annually.
I'll admit I only saw them play once this season, which was very early on at the event at Edison HS. I bring them up because of their recent struggles in the past two years and the constant chatter I hear about the coach, which I have no firsthand knowledge about. I thought their team was better than their record.
