New coaches for Golden Valley, Simi Valley

When the Simi Valley and Golden Valley football teams meet to open the season on Sept. 2, both teams will have new coaches calling the plays from the sidelines.

Golden Valley coach Andy Campbell resigned last week, less than a month before the opening game and a week before the opening of camp.

Simi Valley coach Lance Martin stepped down Monday.

The Daily News is reporting that Robert Fisher will be the interim head coach for Golden Valley and Ryan Taggart will be at the helm for Simi Valley for the season opener.

Golden Valley was 3-7 last season under Campbell. The Grizzlies started the season 3-2, but went winless against Foothill League opponents.

Simi Valley was 2-8 overall last season. The Pioneers went 2-7 in the tough Marmonte League.
