Bellevue football coach Butch Goncharoff has applied to coach at Orange Lutheran in California, the Los Angeles Times is reporting. Click here.
Goncharoff told Eric Sondheimer Tuesday he has applied for the job, telling the reporter, “It’s a great area and a great situation. I wouldn’t have applied if I wasn’t interested. We’ll see what happens.”
I just caught up with Goncharoff, who said he has never applied for a new job since being hired at Bellevue. He just wanted to go through the process.
“I’ve never gone through the process before,” said Goncharoff, who has won nine state titles in 11 years. “There’s nothing about Bellevue I’m displeased about. It’s awesome. The community is great. The school is great. My situation is unbelievable. I just want to put myself out there, take a look at it.”
He added, “I’ve never said I’m leaving. I’m just going through the process for whatever that’s worth.”
