Jeff Kearin has resigned as football coach at Los Angeles Loyola for "personal reasons" and will be replaced on an interim basis by defensive coordinator Adam Guerra, school spokesman Ben Tomlin said Saturday. Loyola had a bye this week and is 2-2 on the season after a victory last week over Bellflower St. John Bosco. Kearin took over for Steve Grady in 2005 and guided the Cubs to the Southern Section Division I championship in his rookie season as coach. But the Cubs didn't make the playoffs the next two years before returning to the postseason last year.

Jeff Kearin, Cal State Northridge's football assistant head coach, is joining John Robinson's staff at Nevada Las Vegas. "It was tough to leave but it's something I think I had to do for myself in order to get a head coaching job someday," Kearin said. Kearin, 38, was a Northridge assistant the last four seasons under three coaches and was the team's recruiting coordinator. He was an assistant to Robinson at USC from 1991-94. Kearin will be tight ends coach and help with special teams at UNLV.

Jeff Kearin needed to be heard. In the fourth quarter of Cal State Northridge's 71-14 loss at Kansas on Saturday, the red-faced Matador coach spent five minutes waging an intense argument with an official. Trailing by 57 points, Northridge had just turned the ball over on downs at its 16-yard line when backup quarterback Josh Fiske's fourth-down pass fell incomplete. More than 33,000 spectators at Memorial Stadium roared at what appeared to be a desperate attempt by Northridge.

Jeff Kearin will be hired today as Cal State Northridge football coach, a source familiar with the school's search said Wednesday. Kearin, 39, was a Matador assistant the last four seasons. He left after the 1998 season to become an assistant to John Robinson at Nevada Las Vegas. He replaces Ron Ponciano, who was fired on Friday after one season for alleged NCAA rules violations.

For nearly two decades, Jeff Kearin aspired to be a Division I head coach, twice coming close. Kearin, 39, got his wish on Thursday when Cal State Northridge hired him to guide its troubled football program on a six-month interim basis. The circumstances could have been better, Kearin said, but coaching the Matadors is an opportunity he couldn't pass up, even as the program tries to rebound from weeks of turmoil. "We're behind the eight-ball a little bit," Kearin said.

As Jeff Kearin strives to instill order as interim football coach at Cal State Northridge, uncertainty lingers. More than two months have passed since an internal investigation of the Matador program was launched to address numerous alleged NCAA violations. The inquiry led to the firing of Coach Ron Ponciano and the forced resignation of top assistant Rob Phenicie. Yet, the university still has not released the findings of its inquiry and no release date has been set.

Two weeks into the season and San Jose State looks pretty much like the second-worst team in the nation. With bright flags flapping in the breeze and the band playing, "Hail, Spartans, Hail," the team stumbled through its home opener Saturday, losing 56-10 to Wisconsin in a game that was not as close as the score implies. The receivers dropped passes.
