Howard Isom, an assistant coach in the Huntington Beach Union High School District for 16 years, has been named varsity football coach at Ocean View High School.
Isom, 41, replaces Guy Carrozzo, who resigned 10 days ago to accept a varsity position at Elsinore High.
Isom became an assistant at his alma mater, Westminster High, in 1973 under former Coach Bill Boswell and then moved to Huntington Beach High in 1980 where he was an assistant under Greg Henry and George Pascoe.
Isom has been an assistant at Ocean View for the past four years, serving under Karl Gaytan for one season and then under Carrozzo for three.
Rick Jones, offensive coordinator at Long Beach Millikan High School the past two seasons, has been named varsity football coach at El Dorado.
