This shows where CVUSD's priorities are.

What do you mean? If a coach/teacher is not effective, don't you think a change should be made? I sure do!

All Chino High sports programs have been affected by the construction of Chino Hills High and Colony High. Many of the athletes at these schools would have attended Chino. Ifo Expre Olomo lives in the Chino boundary but chose Chino Hills. Chino High needs new facilities IE locker room and weight room, if it is to complete for the best players. Let's face it, there is recruiting and parents/kids/coaches want the newer facilities. Chino is 8-32 in the four years after Monger quit. I think Monger knew that the talent was going to Colony and Chino Hills. Those 2 schools have been in post season during the same 4 years.

too bad wins and losses are more important grades, teaching the players respect,morals, and fair play in CVUSD. I thought getting kids graduated and teaching them the game and to have fun was more important. I guess thats not the direction they want to take!

Chino High had to start 12 sophomores this year on the Varsity level. "12" That is a huge number. As far as concerned parent goes, I don't feel you understand what is going on with this program. No one could have done anything with what Setlich what was given. He implemented great coaching at the lower levels, that will all be gone now, and a great system at the upper level. Everyone wants to knock him for the "Milk-Can Game" but he lost to the team he built. But in my opinion the biggest thing is 12 sophomores starting on Varsity. You're just not going to win.

Coach Setlich will be missed. He loved his teams, coached with class and was always graceful win or lose. Coach Setlich was positive and his players followed their coach's lead and always played hard. I hope to see you on the sidelines again soon Coach. I will always remember the drive and desire you had as a player at Chino and Claremont High Schools.

Thank you for the great example you have been to the Pomona Valley High School football scene.

Mark, this school district is about Chino Hills and the schools in that part of the district. Most of the school board is from that city. Also if graduating students with good grads was such a priority then why does the teachers union fight any attempt to discipline or fire an underperforming teacher. All of this is about money and who gets what. South ontario part of the district has no resident on the school board. At least that nut case Heatly moved on!!

It was with heavy heart I read that Greg Setlich resigned. My son played during the Monger/Merandi/Setlich era, and he learned from the best. Coach Setlich coached Chino High as he was coached, led by example, hard work, team work, class, respect, sportsmanship and heart. He knew what he was walking into and what he had to work with and he accepted the challenge. He didn't give up on his teams, the powers that be gave up on him. How sad a chrome milk can is more important than the life lessons this coach could have continued teaching to these kids. What a loss for Chino High and our kids. To Coach Setlich: May you find a school that stands behind you and allows you to continue what you do best...lead by example.

Lets face it, the reason stated for coache's departure is not the real reason. He had no support and the principle hates winning or competition. This is the same principle that wants to ignore the achievements of honor students at graduation by not recognizing them with front row seating. As a parent of a sophmore player I will miss the guy and so will my son.

I know Adam Bailey and I don't think he is against the athletic programs. The truth is that the program is down and has been. This creates many unhappy people. Also don't forget that football ticket money pays the bills and the school got used to the large attendance and the revenue that brings. Football ticket money goes to many programs including the ASB. Moving to a new league will make the sports teams more competitive

How can you be against competition in scholastics but not carry that same attitude to sports. Frankly, building a team will build a fan base and this move builds nothing.

Another, I think you are one of the few that will miss him. It sounds like the players believe this was a good move. Many players quit during the season and just prior to the start of the season. I think that he came in with the wrong attitude "I am the savior" and made some enemies. It will be tough to get this program back to a high level no matter who the coach is. It will take a good marketing campain and some district restriction of transfers to improve the overall picture a Chino. Many would be Chino High students are attending other schools that are new. Roosevelt in Corona is brand new and is affecting Chino High enrollment

If there's a more knowledgeable, caring Coach than Greg Setlich, I'd like to meet him.

He's a bit "old school" but the sport demands such traits to develop success.

I'm sure he'll land on his feet at a place that appreciates his talent and skills.

Really good comments. Poor Chino High...lack of support all the way around. It took a LA county lawsuit (Williams Act) to get the district to do any clean up of the school. Adam Bailey does care about his school but just as others said, it appears that with a district composed of many high schools, some may not get the attention that others do (Chino vs. Chino Hills schools). Hope future school board elections change this!

Setlich getting forced to resign after 2 seasons is ridiculous. Even more ridiculous is the fact that an Athletic Director has the power to fire and then hire himself. Isn't that a conflict of interest. Is it true that the athletic director recruited Setlich by luring him from lugo only to give him 2 years, and fire him only to hire himself? Wow! "Thanks for coaching up those sophmores, I'll take it from here. Good Luck Coach, sure would be nice if you could coach on that other sideline next year huh?

LETS ALL BE HONEST SETLICH WAS NOT A GOOD HEAD COACH. IF YOU DID SOMETHING OPPOSITE THAN HE WANTED THEN HE GOT MAD. IF A PLAYER DECIDED NOT TO PLAY SETLICH'S ATTITUDE TOWARDS HIM WOULD CHANGE, BUT THAT SAME PLAYER IS THE ONE HE WAS CATERING TO WHEN HE WAS PLAYING. SETLICH DID NOT HAVE A WINNING RECORD WHEN HE CAME SO WHY SHOULD WE EXPECT HIM TO WIN AT CHINO. THE TEAM WAS YOUNG BUT IT WAS NOT A 2-18 PROGRAM. GOOD LUCK TO COACH MCCAIN HOPEFULLY YOU CAN TURN THINGS AROUND

Horrible man? NO.New Mt. Baldy league as strong as old Sierra league? NO.El Monte, Oak Park, and Northview as strong as Claremont, Etiwanda, and Corona? NO. Those are the facts. I am a Chino Grad and am happy we are winning. When we won before, we did it with dignity and class. Please do the same. 3 more wins and 10-0 for the first time since 1998. GREAT accomplishment. Be proud and humble. That is the Monger way. the Chino way. Last year was probably a horrible experience for you and Setlich, but he is not a horrible coach or man and you probably are not either. You are just upset because you didn't win or didn't play alot. that's all. I'm rooting for you and proud to be a cowboy. It would be nice to spell your coach McCain's name correctly. He would appreciate that. Go Cowboys!

Character and class. Deception and ego. Wow. Thank god for the mt. Baldy league and win at all costs without any lifelong learning. Which coach really cared about you? Mickey Mouse could have (and did) coach that team in the mt. Baldy league. Now both coaches are gone, you can decide who the best person is. New coach seems to be a nice fit, new palomares league should be interesting... We all get judged in the end.
