: : Vanguard assistant coach, James Parker, hired as head coach at Pacifica Christian. JSerra has still yet to hire a head coach and parents are not happy. Wondering what’s going on down there? Possibly a clueless administration?
: : SM hires quick and already started summer camp.
: : Brea Olinda with an in-house hire, already started.
: : Los Al hires vanguard alumni and got started.
: : Pacifica Christian also takes a vanguard associate and got started.
: : Hmmmmm....
: JSerra wants a top-level, experienced coach that also fits with the mission of the school. It's not a place where they want to hire a trainee coach (SM went this route despite their coach's very successful playing career-she will have a 2-3 year learning curce)
: They also expect a coach to be able to attract top talent and to compete and beat the likes of Mater Dei and Rosary (as well as SM, who they have generally beaten like a drum in GBB over the years). The resources will be there if they get the coaching hire right.
: Of the two south county TL schools this is the better opportunity of the two given recent history and location of school.
: Recent hires at JSerra have fit that profile quite well-and the athletic department has generally gotten their hires right. Surprised this has taken as long as it has-=the right coach could be VERY successful there.
: Having said that-this has taken too long and if it drags will do major damage to the program long-term (especially if the hire is less than stellar). Don't blame parents for being upset-maybe administration needs to have a parent meeting to calm the waters?
Just seems like parents are kept in the dark often down there. They can’t afford to hire a trainee coach as they had a lot of talent coming back... with that being said, I agree with what the above poster said and wouldn’t be surprised if kids started to leave. This is strictly an administrative issue.
