He called the campus "a beacon in the Compton community for many years."

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has made a foolish, outrageous decision by firing Dudley Rooney of Alemany High for the embarrassing disclosure that a registered sex offender coached at the Mission Hills campus last school year. Rooney, Alemany's longtime athletic director, has become the scapegoat for the hiring of former boys' basketball coach Darryl McDonald, who was convicted in 1989 for oral copulation with a minor. Anyone close to Alemany knows it was the former principal, Rev.
