Update: Rios to be named head coach at Saturday’s school board meeting.
Sources out of Edcouch Elsa have told 956sports.com that former Vela boys basketball coach Lalo Rios will take over for Robert Capello.
On January 8, Capello won his 1000th game.
It was believed that Capello’s assistant and son Randy Capello would be his successor.
Rios comes to the Yellow Jackets from Vela where the Sabercats were the top team in the valley.
Their season was cut short when it was reported that they had an ineligible player.
The Sabercats were made to forfeit the games played with the player, and the Sabercats ultimately missed the playoffs.
Rios resigned after the season.
