Chatsworth Finds Tutor for Its Football Coaches

August 26, 2000

Coach Bill Coan and his assistant, Ron Martinez, could be back coaching the football team at Chatsworth High by Monday night after the school hired an instructor to conduct a district-mandated coaches' certification program.

Coan and Martinez will each pay $60 to attend an eight-hour workshop Monday at Chatsworth that is required for them to coach. They were barred from coaching on Thursday for failing to complete the program.

The workshop is open to all coaches.


* Senate Bill 338 is headed to Gov. Gray Davis for final approval after the state Senate passed it, 38-0, Friday.

SB 338, sponsored by state Sen. Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley), originally called for a state law that would require universities and community colleges to provide one-year notification to athletes before dropping a program. The Assembly Committee on Higher Education changed the language of the bill to say "reasonable notification of a termination."

The bill also directs colleges to make every reasonable effort to place athletes in other programs and to honor athletic scholarships.
