Rob Dibble fired after 2-8 start as Calabasas baseball coach

Roving scout: “If I did run the Calabasas High team and lose, I’d serve out my contract, I wouldn’t leave clubhouse mid-term.”

Dibble said when he took a job with Compass Media to announce Los Angeles Angels games, he informed the Calabasas High administration that he couldn’t commit to coaching the Coyotes baseball team past this season.

Dibble coached Calabasas against Agoura on Tuesday. The Coyotes lost 8-1. During the game, Dibble was ejected from the game for arguing with the umpires after a call was reversed in favor of Agoura.

The loss dropped Calabasas to 2-8 overall and 1-4 in the Marmonte League. After the game, Dibble was fired as the coach and replaced by Edsall.

“There really is no story,” Dibble said in an e-mail. “After 10 months being at the field every day, even during the school’s sixth period, there was no way I could commit past this season. When I informed the school they asked me to resign ASAP.

“I said I wouldn’t quit. That would not be a good message to the players. I’ve spoken to most of the players and their parents and will continue to help them get into college or pursue their dream of playing baseball.”

Did they rehire him again so they could fire him twice?
