Coach retires from La Mirada High after over 40 years of coaching locally; interviews for new coach begin next week

La Mirada~After 17 years as head coach of La Mirada High School Softball, Rich Trujillo has decided to “take a break,“ and will not return next season.

“It’s been a lot of fun and I’m glad to have been part of it. I appreciate the opportunity,” Trujillo told us via telephone,” whoever takes over I wish nothing but success and good luck and if there is anything I can do to help out I will.”

Co-Athletic Director at the school Jimmy Zurn told us the job for new head coach will be posted this week and interviews are scheduled to begin the week of August 3rd.

The school still lists Trujillo as the head coach on their website.

Trujillo said his phone has been busy, “I’m getting lots of calls from (former) players and their families.”

Trujillo’s Lady Mats appeared in three CIF Southern Section Finals, unfortunately falling short each time.

La Mirada won the Suburban League championship 13 of the 17 years with Trujillo at the helm.

Before coaching at La Mirada, Trujillo coached four years at Cypress College garnering a state championship.
