Corona football coach interviews begin Saturday
Corona del Sol will conduct its first round of interviews for the school’s football coach opening this weekend.
Former Mountain View coach Tom Joseph and Saguaro offensive coordinator Matt Lewis both said this week that they will interview. Internal assistants Tim Kelly and Ken Olson will also interview.
An exact number of candidates wasn’t immediately known. The Aztecs would like to have finalists for the position named sometime next week, make its selection in the next 10 days and have it approved by the school board at its Jan. 5 meeting.
The interview panel consists of principal Susan Edwards, district athletic director Dr. Ken Salas, Corona athletic director Dan Nero, three Corona teachers, two parents of football players still part of the program and one community member.
It’s the second time in a year the Aztecs have had to go through this process. The school fired Zane Zamenski last month after one season at the school after a second investigation revealed more inappropriate conduct and having a player practice despite not being cleared by the team medical staff after a concussion.
