: : : : : : : : Rumor is that Don Lugo coach is headed to Chino Hills next season.
: : : : : : : Really? I the only reason I see Chino Hill making a move like that would be because he is also a travel ball coach. But I don't see it being a step up from what they aready have. Here are 3 coaches they should go after if they are going to make a move at all.
: : : : : : : Chris Emami- Lead Ontario to the state play-offs. CH would have to at least interest him
: : : : : : : Johnny Davis @ Chino is a good coach won a couple of league titles. Came from Centiennal.
: : : : : : : Mike James @ Just finished a solid play-off run at Claremont but could get better players at Chills.
: : : : : : I hope they mean the Don Lugo assistant coach, since he's the one who has a club team. The head coach has never won league, has a sub-.500 winning record, and a 1-4 record in the playoffs.
: : : : : : Emami isn't a great pick either. He has sculpted seasons at Ontario by loading up on wins against bad teams in the preseason. It also helped that he managed to get a transfer from Bloomington Christian that played while they were hot. Nothing he did ever prepared his teams to beat the best teams in their league at their best. It took graduations and a transfer at Alta Loma and turmoil at Colony (3rd coach in 4 years) before he could take league. That kind of luck will never happen with Etiwanda and Los Osos in your league.
: : : : : : Chino Hills deserves a legit coach if they're ever going to get talent from the area to go there and to have a legit chance against Etiwanda and Los Osos in league.
: : : : : Chino Hills has rode the same horse for the past seven years and the same old results. It's time to put someone else in charge of the program.
: : : : Hey let the young coach from Don Lugo have a go at the Chino Hills job. The job coach Stan has done has been totally unacceptable, lack of game planning and no direction with the program.As long as Stan is the coach you will not get any top level players to come to Chino Hills to play.
: : : Ontario coach supposedly resigned this week to go elsewhere.
: : If that's true, Emami got out before the bottom falls out. His best player graduated and Ontario isn't known for being a landing spot for talent.
: : And I can see where the Chino Hills principal may have issues over letting Stan go. Whatever else he is, he's only had 1 sub .500 team in all of the years he's been there, and he's 2 years removed from making the CIF semifinals. Without a serious issue, it's hard to justify running off the winningest coach in school history.
: : This season was a complete embarrassment. The record was poor but the level of play was even worse. Next season will be equally as bad at best but probably will be even worse if you can imagine that. If a coaching change isn�t made, talented players will continue to go elsewhere. Yes he made CIF semis a few years back, but had two players that had exceptional seasons that carried him there. I agree with some of the other posters, give the young coach from Don Lugo a shot and I guarantee he will turns things around quickly and attract talented players.
Don't get it wrong...I agree that a change needs to happen. I've seen the stories about Stan pulling his starting lineup with small leads and sitting them for long stretches for no good reason, only to lose the game. I can't condone crap like that. I was only playing devil's advocate and pointing out how the principal and AD may see things.There's a good chance that the circus that Chino Hills has had on the boy's side as of late has helped Stan stick around as well. Stan just slid under the radar while the Ball headache played itself out.
I like the Don Lugo assistant. Good dude who runs a good small club. I think he could do good things running his own program.
