PREP NOTES

Sea Kings Hire Football Coach

March 17, 1994

Mark Schuster has been named football coach at Corona del Mar High, Athletic Director Jerry Jelnick announced Wednesday.

Schuster, 46, had been the football coach at Azusa High for the last nine years. During his tenure, Azusa reached the Southern Section playoffs six times and compiled a record of 61-33-3.

"We like his high school experience and his college experience," Jelnick said. "We did not know anything about him going in, but the people we contacted in that area had nothing but good things to say about him. They said he ran a first-class program and did a lot with not much talent."

Schuster takes over for Dave Holland, who resigned to take the defensive coordinator's job at Grossmont College. Holland guided the Sea Kings to two Southern Section titles in his 20 years as head coach.

Schuster will continue at Azusa the remainder of year, but will begin an afternoon commute Friday to begin gathering information about his new program. He will teach in the school's health sciences department.

Schuster lives in Diamond Bar with his three children, Craig, 20, a free safety at Azusa Pacific; Kristen, 19, and Traci, 16, who will attend Corona del Mar.
