St. Anthony football Coach Ken Sharrar has resigned to become a graduate assistant coach at USC. Sharrar, 24, was the youngest head coach in the Southeast/Long Beach area last season when he guided the Saints (6-5) to their first playoff appearance in five years. He is the fifth area football coach to resign since the season ended. Roughly half (20) of all head coaching positions in the area have changed hands in the last 2 1/2 years.
