Rancho Alamitos football Coach Doug Case announced he is leaving the school after seven years "to pursue other opportunities closer to home." Home for Case is north Tustin, where his three children attend school. Case, 36, covets the Foothill job, which opened when Casey Mazzotta resigned after two seasons to be an assistant at Fullerton College. "For the Foothill job to open up less than two miles from my home is a dream come true," Case said.
