: : he went to magnolia high school not fremont as reported in jserra's press release. fremont is a middle school and Fresno let him go and hired a 7th grade coach in may to replace him.
: : no one did their home work on this hire.
: Might have been as simple as they wanted a credentialed on-campus coach in the position. He's a walk-on. Big city school districts do stuff like that.
: Ledyard's hiring record has been pretty good-Harlow, Wilkinson to start-hiring lacrosse coach away from SM; enormous progress made in softball.
: Also notice on his FB page that among his friends were Kevin Kiernan (Mater Dei)and Burrell Lee (former coach at St John Bosco). Possible references?
: He did go onto play at Cal State San Bernardino. Assisted on top teams in Fresno area in a league that arguably may be as tough (or tougher) than the Trinity League. And certainly wasn't afraid to play brutal schedules (I see the likes of St Mary's in Stockton, Windward and Sierra Canyon on his schedules in addition to league games against Clovis West and Clovis North).
: They did go 2 rounds deep in State D-2 this year. Not the sign of a weak coach or program.
: Give the guy a chance-he's earned it.
