Long-time Morro Bay coach Nerelli accepts job at Hancock College

After 26 seasons and 456 wins as the girls varsity head coach at Morro Bay High, Cary Nerelli is ready for his next challenge. He's accepted a job as the head coach of the Allan Hancock College women's basketball team.

Athletic Director Kim Ensing has scheduled a press conference to introduce Nerelli to the Bulldog coaching staff on Wednesday afternoon.

Nerelli inherits a program that has struggled for more than a decade. Hancock is coming off a 4-22 season that included a 0-10 mark in Western State Conference play.

Hancock has not finished higher than fourth place in conference play since 2003 when it finished fourth at 6-6 in league. The Bulldogs have not enjoyed a winning season since they went 22-8 in 1995.

Nerelli is coming off a 22-4 season at Morro Bay High, where he led the Lady Pirates to their third-straight Los Padres League title. He finished his career at Morro Bay with a career record of 456-219, which came out to a .675 winning percentage. He guided the program to CIF-Southern Section titles in 1991, 1992 and 1999.

Nerelli has also coached the school's cross country and golf programs for several years.

Hear from Nerelli on KSBY News at 6,10 and 11 pm on Wednesday night.
