Football: Ancich reinstated as St. Paul coach

August 27, 2010 |  3:24 pm

Marijon Ancich has been reinstated as coach at Santa Fe Springs St. Paul after the school and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles conducted an investigation into an alleged hazing incident earlier this month.

In a letter addressed to parents and community members, Principal Kate Aceves stated that the investigation determined that a hazing incident took place and that the football team and coaching staff will face disciplinary action.

Ancich, the winningest coach in Southern California history, and much of his coaching staff had been put on leave pending outcome of the investigation. But he and other members were expected back for a scrimmage on Friday.

Here's a report from the Whittier Daily News.
