On the last days of the Costa Mesa High baseball season, Coach Jim Kiefer talked about next year and how so many players planned to return. Kiefer has decided he will not join them next season. Kiefer informed his players on Wednesday that he stepped down as coach to concentrate on being the boys' athletic director, and to pursue his master's degree and to spend time with his family. Kiefer led the Mustangs for six seasons, guiding them to the Orange Coast League title two years ago. The league crown was the program's first since 1978 and one of Kiefer's finest moments.

A week ago, Patrick Murphy posted a photo on Facebook of him standing behind two of his Newport Harbor High standout pitchers, Shaun Vetrovec and Connor Seabold, on national signing day. On Thursday, Murphy found himself out of the picture as their baseball coach. Murphy said he is no longer the Sailors' coach. "I'm not in a position to comment at this time," Murphy said when asked why he isn't coaching at Newport Harbor, where he also teaches. Murphy won't get to coach Vetrovec and Seabold, who signed letters of intent with UC Irvine and Cal State Fullerton, respectively, for their senior years at Newport Harbor.

University High's Chris Conlin was diagnosed with cancer last month, but the long-time high school coach is maintaining a positive outlook in an effort to beat it. Conlin, University High's baseball coach for the past 23 years, learned he had squamous cell carcinoma in his neck in September. He had surgery to remove the mass soon after and just this week began a seven-week program of radiation and chemotherapy therapy. Conlin is still at school for now, continuing his duties as co-Athletic Director and an assistant coach on the varsity football team.

Jason Lynch's firing as boys' water polo and swimming coach at Newport Harbor High has surprised both members of the Sailors aquatics community and coaches on campus. Newport Harbor senior Andrew Duhoux said he quit the swim team Thursday after meeting with Principal Michael Vossen. Duhoux, who was the team captain, said Lynch's indefinite removal – announced by Vossen April 4 – and his subsequent firing – announced Friday – "have really torn our team apart. " "It's about half and half on who wants him back and who doesn't," said Duhoux, a Daily Pilot Dream Team selection in boys' water polo last fall who plans to walk on at UC San Diego.
