Mario Porto, who last season guided Moorpark High to the baseball playoffs for the first time in 42 years, has resigned as coach to become an assistant at Moorpark College.
Porto will join the staff of Ken Wagner, who was hired as Raider coach last week.
"I coached with Mario in several all-star games and have known him for a long time," said Wagner, who formerly coached at Camarillo High. "We're lucky he wants to coach with us. He felt, as I do, that it was a good opportunity to move up and coach at the college level."
Wagner earlier had announced that Mel Bannon, his assistant at Camarillo, also would be joining the Moorpark staff.
Porto, who teaches at Community High, a continuation school in Moorpark, was coach of Moorpark High's baseball team for four seasons.
He was selected Ventura County Division II Coach of the Year by the county coaches' association last season after leading the Musketeers to a 15-7 record and a second-place tie with Fillmore in the Tri-Valley League.
