Longtime Corona del Sol assistant Tim Kelly was named interim coach of the Aztecs for the rest of the 2013 season, according to an email from principal Brent Brown.
Kelly will fill in for Tom Joseph, who was fired last Thursday, a day before the Aztecs lost to Mesquite in which Kelly was named the "acting" coach. Corona plays at Brophy (at Phoenix College) this Friday night.
Players were expected to be notified after school on Monday, while a staff email will also be sent.
Kelly, a former player and graduate of Corona del Sol in the mid-1980s, is also the school's track coach.
