Scott Meyer as the new football coach at Corona del Mar High appears to be a great hire. But only time will reveal the truth.
The only truth now is that the administration is very happy to land someone like Meyer, who was the head coach at Long Beach Jordan for six years and a defensive coordinator at Long Beach Wilson this past fall. I repeat, the administration is very happy. But not everyone at CdM is overjoyed.
Bill Sumner, regarded as one of the top cross country and track and field coaches in the nation, was not too pleased he was left off the hiring panel, yet again. Sumner is in his 28th year at CdM. He has guided girls' cross country teams to seven state titles and the boys' teams to two state titles. He also has 15 CIF Southern Section titles from cross country and track and field for CdM. Simply put, the guy knows how to win.
