    Congratulations Arnie! You will be missed on the radio with Gary, but so happy for you and mainly for the BUHS kids!

    Perhaps I’m missing something – I usually do – but why no mention of the long and stellar career of former Coach Bill Egan?

    Good for Arnie; he’s a good man.

    But in my view any story about a new football coach at BUHS should mention the achievements of the outgoing one, ESPECIALLY in this case.

    Coach Egan was a great coach and teacher.

    Oscar, you are right about Bill. In my 50 years of teaching and coaching at various high schools, Bill was the greatest high school coach I’ve seen, in any sport. He could have been successful at any higher level had he chosen to do so. The Inyo Register fumbled the ball on this one.
