Eric Bergstrom, associate head football coach and offensive coordinator at Occidental College, will be named new head football coach at Alhambra High School on Monday, Mid Valley News reports. Bergstrom has been coaching at the Los Angeles college since 2004.
Alhambra High dismissed the entire football coaching staff last Tuesday after coaches provided several players with nutritional supplements. Former head coach Chuck Leonardis told the Pasadena Star-News last week that seven players from his team inquired about a nutritional supplement containing creatine, a muscle-building chemical. Leonardis says his staff provided them with the supplement but did not recommend its use.
