After four years with Forrest Williams at the helm, the Long Beach football program will have a new man in charge next season. However, he’s still part of the Bearcat family, just in a different capacity. On Monday, Long Beach High School announced the end of the Forrest Williams era on the field. Off the field, he’ll be taking a step forward as the new assistant principal. "It's about serving kids and doing what's best to help our young people, and it's just going to be a different avenue for that." In 2014, Williams took over a winless team from the year before and in one short presidential term led the Bearcats to their first winning season since 2011. "Four years ago, had a coaching staff that came in and really bought in to what we were trying to do. And leaving here, stepping away four years later, we've left on a firm foundation when it felt like we played seven homecomings my first year. This year, we were the No. 2 offense in 5A." Moving the ball was a big part of the 6-5 turnaround which had the Bearcats just one win away from returning to the playoffs for the first time in six years. Williams says that probably wasn’t his last crack at post-season high school football. "Coaching is not something you do, it's who you are. And I feel like a good football coach, if the right opportunity presented itself I'd love to - it's got to be an opportunity that's good for me and my family, but also a community that wants to win in football." In a press release, Long Beach officials have announced former girls basketball coach Terry D’Angelo as the next director of athletics starting July 1st. The school will begin its search for the next head football coach immediately.   [READ MORE]
