Former Paso Robles football coach Larry Grant has left the building.
The former Clovis coach has moved back to the valley. His two nephews, or whatever the relationship was, have also transferred from Paso Robles high school to Clovis. They left shortly after the Bearcats lost in the 1st round of the CIF play offs.
Grant left a departing tweet. He writes, “for all the negative that I’ve been falsely blamed for… There was much more positive gained for myself and my family at Paso Robles high school. Great group of students and youth that I will miss dearly. Gained many great relationships with all the players in high school and in the youth and new coaches on the staff that will carry for a lifetime. My family and I have been dragged through the mud with issues as far as race, labeled as gangsters by a certain parent and others, and many other crazy accusations. He says, “I’m happy to put Paso in my rear view. Best thing about the school district has been Eric Martinez, Holly Bigelow and Bob Velasquez. Greatest people in the world.
He writes that he wishes the kids of Paso Robles all of the best. Grant made no mention of superintendent Chris Williams or his sycophant, Rich Clayton, who hired coach Grant from Clovis, and fired him after one game.
