Prestesater first made a name for himself locally as a standout athlete at Glendora. His coaching career was highlighted by a very successful run at San Dimas, where he spent most of his career. Prestesater returned to coaching in 2005, following a brief retirement, and led West Covina to the San Antonio League title in his first season. The Bulldogs were 33-23 in Prestesater’s two seasons, and the 2006 league title was the school’s first since 1994. Prestesater later coached the Tribune team to a win in the Tribune/Star-News All-Star Classic following the season. “I think I did the best I could,” Prestesater said. “I just tried to get the program back to where it should be. I don’t know if they were really together there, so that’s what I tried to do.” Prestesater said he should be fine following surgery and didn’t completely rule out another return to coaching, but said it was unlikely. “I don’t know what’s going to happen,” he said. “If I knew for sure, then I’d probably come back. If somebody gets that job who I know, I can help them out.” West Covina athletic director Brian Murphy said the search for a replacement will begin immediately. Interest parties should contact Murphy at (626) 859-2900, Ext. 2975. center_img West Covina High School boys basketball coach Gary Prestesater has resigned after two seasons at the school because of back and leg ailments. “It’s hard to go out there and sit down during practice,” said Prestesater, who will have back surgery early next week. “I couldn’t stand in practice. My leg started hurting so bad.” last_img read more


Leno, O’Brien set to return

first_imgNBC announced Monday that its two late-night stars, Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien, would return Jan. 2 even if the strike against networks and studios by writers was not resolved. It said the two hosts would perform without writers, and the shows may face a challenge in booking guests because many actors have expressed sympathy for the writers. The hosts may also face opposition from the striking writers guilds, which have thus far urged them to support the strike by staying off the air. Approximately 12,000 members of the Writers Guild of America, west, and the Writers Guild of America, east, walked out Nov. 5. But the executive producers of both programs said they believed that an exception might be made for the late-night shows because the hosts had been paying their nonwriting staff members. In statements released Monday, Leno and O’Brien both said they had supported the writers strike but decided that the time had come to return because of the risk that their nonwriting staff members would lose their jobs. Exactly what the shows will be able to do is unclear, the executive producers said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

CBS’s late-night star, David Letterman, is pursuing an interim agreement that would allow him to return with his writers Jan. 2. Letterman is in a position to make such a deal because his production company, Worldwide Pants, owns both his show and the one that follows on CBS, hosted by Craig Ferguson. Letterman’s representatives said they had been negotiating with the Writers Guild for an interim agreement and hoped they would be successful. One representative of a late-night show said some members of the guild leadership might have concerns about making a separate arrangement with Letterman, and that an agreement was far from a sure thing. According to a notice sent by the Writers Guild to its members, strike rules prohibit them from performing “any writing services during a strike for any and all struck companies.” last_img read more
