Though it casted a wide net of candidates, Marcos de Niza stayed on the inside in hiring its next football coach.

Offensive coordinator Sean Morin takes over the program on a permanent basis, according to school principal Frank Mirizio.

Morin was the team's interim coach during the playoffs when former coach Roy Lopez was placed on administrative leave when the postseason began. Lopez ultimately said he was cleared of any wrongdoing, but resigned in December. The Padres reached the Division II quarterfinals before falling to Chaparral.

Morin was the team's offensive coordinator the past three years and has been at the school for 11 years as its head JV and freshman coach. He played at River Valley and Mohave high schools and Long Beach Poly City College in California.

Mirizio said Mike Rohme (offensive line) and Ben Patrick (wide receivers) are staying on as assistants while the rest of the staff is formulated.

Morin teaches history at the school.
