The incident took place on Aug. 14 in the locker room. According to a letter from principal Kate Aceves, Marijon and Visko Ancich, Avina, Lou Cabral, Oliver Cepeida, Rich Estrella and Anthony Wilson were “not found culpable of any knowledge of the incident.”
One coach was not reinstated, and the Daily News reported that it was believed to be Juan Gonzalez, who had coached freshmen for four seasons and was promoted to varsity for 2010. Aceves told the paper that one coach’s contract was not renewed “because of a personnel issue.” She did confirm that an incident took place, but didn’t expand, other than to say the majority of the football team “had some sort of involvement whether as a witness or participant.”
Aceves also said the coaches and team will face disciplinary action, although it will not forfeit any games.
Ancich, with a 347-131-4 career record, is California’s second-winningest coach behind Bob Ladouceur (356-25-3) of De La Salle (Concord). Ancich had been No. 1 prior to the 2009 season.
