While nothing is yet official, it appears that one former UCLA assistant will replace a colleague at Pasadena High.
Eric Scott, a one-time standout wide receiver at Los Angeles Crenshaw High and UCLA, is set to become the Bulldogs next head coach, according to an unnamed school administrator Monday afternoon.
As for the team, Pasadena finished 1-9 in 2012, which was well short of the Bulldogs' preseason goal of winning the squad's first Pacific League championship since 1984.
The 1-9 finish marked the third time in nine years the program concluded a one-win season, which was at least due in part to a season-ending injury to Cox in the second game of the year.
A day after the season concluded with a 37-7 defeat to Muir in the Turkey Tussle, Bulldogs third-year Coach Randy Horton tendered his letter of resignation, stating, "I had always set my goal for being here for three years."
The Bulldogs finished 11-21 in Horton's three years.
Horton was a member of the Bruins' 2007 strength and conditioning crew the same year Scott was a wide receivers coach under then-head coach Karl Dorrell.
When Dorrell was ousted after the 2007 season, neither Dorrell or Scott returned for the 2008 season under new coach Rick Neuheisel.
Scott left UCLA to take over Compton Centennial in 2008, a year in which the program finished 1-9.
However, the following season, Scott led a resurgence as Centennial finished 7-4 and won a Pioneer League championship.
Shortly after, Scott joined the coaching staff at Long Beach Jordon in 2010 and did not coach in 2011.
When asked to confirm the hire, Pasadena High athletic director Kevin Mills said he had no comment.
Scott was unavailable for comment.
