Golden Valley Girls Basketball Coach Resigns Unexpectedly
The Golden Valley girls basketball team is in search of a new coach.
Daniel Veluzat resigned as the head coach of the Golden Valley girls basketball team after the first Foothill League game of the season.
He told The Signal that a “lack of respect” from the players was the reason he resigned. He was the sixth girls basketball coach in seven years at Golden Valley. Golden Valley was 10-7 under Veluzat, but lost to Valencia to open Foothill League play.
Golden Valley athletic director and football coach Robert Fisher is expected to coach the Golden Valley girls on Friday night against West Ranch.
