: : : : : : Word out of Valencia that Jerry Mike is out at Valencia. Any confirmation from anyone?

: : : : : Story from Santa Clarita Signal

: : : : :

: : : : Valencia best coach ever, 2016-2017 CIF champion and Coach of the Year!!!!

: : : : Best of all, his girls and their parents love this guy. Take care Coach!

: : :
: : : You are kidding right?

: : He coached decades. He won at all levels. He is close with his ex players and even molded some great current coaches who who love him to death. He has a great relationship in the community and is a stand up guy. Anyone who takes a shot at a legend is a baffoon. 25 years of coaching at a high level are worth more than your daughter didnt play and thought he was mean. Blah blah blah. You don't last in this game one place at a major public high school unless your doing EVERYTHING right.

: "Baffoon" - is that a cross between a baboon and a buffoon?

Look, he is a nice guy and an OK coach. And I can't speak for 25 years of players and parents. But I do know some from the last few years and "love this guy" is a bit strong.

And as for that championship, that team was built and developed by Honnaker through the SCV Triple Threat program. He did most of the heavy lifting with that group.

I'm not saying Mike is a bad guy, but let's not go overboard.

More importantly, do they have a replacement in mind? Internal candidate or are they going to look outside the program?
