Marichalar out at Edcouch Elsa



Matt Stepp from Texas reports that Edcouch Elsa has let Joe Marichalar go and are looking to hire a new head football coach.

The Yellow Jackets went 5-5 this season, 3-4 in district.

Rumors started swirling before the season that Marichalar needed to win district to save his job.

This seemed like an impossible task with the amount of talent in 32-5A this year.

Marichalar took over for Joe Solis five seasons ago and led Edcouch Elsa as deep as three rounds twice.

The question now is who will take over for Marichalar?

Let’s throw out some possible replacements.

Tony Villarreal – Former Weslaco head coach
– You have to like the idea of Tony V going back to the mid-valley.

Gene Garza – Former La Villa head coach and current Edcouch Elsa offensive coordinator.
-He knows the kids and he’s won before.

Max Habecker – Former Roma head coach
-He brought Roma from Dark Ages into the light, and has proven to be able to build a program.

Steve Marroquin – Former PSJA head coach.
-He went to Hanna as the OC and look what happened.

Oscar Campos – current OC at Edinburg.
-In two years, Edinburg went from not making the playoffs, to 2nd and 3rd place in district.

Israel Gonzalez – Lyford head coach
-Not that I would want to see him leave Lyford, but he did good things over there, imagine at a 5A.

Tony Harris – Former McHi coach
-Harris hasn’t coached since McHi, but his son is done with school.  Wouldn’t it be nice to see him on the sidelines again?

Mike Uribe – PSJA Memorial
The current head coach at PSJA Memorial has been slowly rebuilding a program that was in the gutters a few years back.  Uribe not only has a track record of winning (Mercedes prior), but he also somehow gets other programs to win as well.   Look at PSJA Mem’s volleyball, softball, basketball programs.

Christian Navarro – Former Valley View head coach, current AD at Edcouch Elsa
-Navarro coached two years at Valley View going 6-4, 1-9.  He was also the coach at Santa Rosa for two years.  He’s been with E-E since 2013 as solely the Athletic Director.
