Strange hire with no local connections that I know of. He was the HC at San Diego Mesa College, but was mysteriously fired or resigned in January. Anyone else with more info?
Interesting move in the Sunset league...
to leave? - be curious to know why he left? - ESPECIALLY if he was a tenured FBHC!
Any word on Costa Mesa job, good district, tough job.
Coaches speak out for Tweit
Newport Harbor football coach Brinkley, volleyball head man Glenn very disappointed and surprised of athletic director being fired Monday.

For the past 23 years, Coach Jeff Brinkley has crossed paths with the individual who led him to Newport Harbor High.
That man is Eric Tweit, the real reason Brinkley said he’s a Sailor. Without Tweit’s support, Brinkley isn’t on the verge next season of earning his 200th football victory at the school.
Tweit is the one who told Brinkley of the job opening at Newport Harbor in 1986.
When Brinkley said he walked into the athletic office Tuesday, he and 20 coaches tried to look at the future without Tweit as the leader of the athletic program.
For the record it is true. I had heard this last week but did not want to say anything erroneous, felt best it came out in public first. With the LAT's now publishing it I can certainly confirm it. Sam Barela has hung up his cleats and will stick to hoops.TheFan wrote:LA times reports, starting QB wont be returning...it will be interesting and board fodder.

Is the teaching job up to the school or the district ?
they coach - This guy does not have his teaching credential yet but was the HC for a community
college FB team, did he not teach any classes at SD Mesa?
He must have income coming in from another source,no? (I think you can still teach classes as
long as you are in the active process of obtaining the credential and I believe there is a time
limit for obtaining it) - anyone?
Interesting, does this mean 6 new QBs in the Sunset League? Any idea who they are? Transfers coming in?
Peter Lofthouse already lives in Lake Forest so he does not have to relocate. He will be a walk-on coach as he continues to work on his credetial with the hope that a PE job may open up at Harbor sometime soon. He has already hired an assistant from OCC. He is already making big promises, but has a lot of work ahead of him.
Battle of the Bay heatin up!
