Russell White is leaving Crespi to become a basketball coach at Cal Lutheran


Russell White said he retired as a basketball coach at Crespi High School to take up the position of head coach at his alma mater, Cal Lutheran.

It is a great loss to Crespi, where he took a struggling program in 2006-07 and took the Celts into one of the best in the powerful Mission Series. Crespi won the titles of Section IV and Section I and two Southern titles under White. He helped develop London's Perrantes, DeonyAnthony Melton and Brandon Williams, all elite college guard. Since then, Perrantes and Melton have been playing in the NBA.

“Crespi will always be my home,” said White in a school newsletter. “I love this school. I am externally grateful for the opportunity given to me 14 years ago, and I hope I was also with Crespi as Crespi was for me. Not only does the fraternity develop by Crespi relate to students but to the team. I felt it personally and I lose it very much. I look forward to the coming years when I join the Dads Crespi club. ”

Cal Lutheran's White trial will be an interesting test for a former high school basketball coach from Southern California trying to use his knowledge and contacts to successfully recruit in the NCAA's Section III. Also it will be interesting to see who he employs as assistant coaches. He graduated from Cal Lutheran in 1994 and was previously training at Calabasas.

Now Crespi must make a critical decision about its replacement. He was the high profile coach. It helped to close a gap after the former baseball coach Scott Muckey retired and his death and the former football coach Troy Thomas.
