COMANCHE — Coaching changes are often about timing.
When a school is about to run low on talent, it is common to see a coach depart for greener pastures. Or, when a school has gone several years without success, it is often a low hanging fruit for young coaches to pick in the job market, with very little pressure.
But first-year Comanche coach Joaquin Escobar had no such motivations. In his case, it was strictly about geography. He simply wanted to return home to Comanche High School, from which he graduated in 1992, and give something back to the community which helped him in his youth.
