Sean Aguano

Sean Aguano Chandler H.S. Aguano, an assistant coach prior to his new assignment, has been involved with the Chandler program for the 10 years of Ewan’s tenure, serving the last six years as offensive coordinator and four years prior to that as receivers’ coach. The AIA said Aguano had seven years of coaching experience in Hawai‘i before arriving in Arizona. Aguano was one of two finalists for the head coach job, the other candidate being Show Low head coach Randy Ricedorff. The Arizona Republic reported that although Aguano appeared to be in line to succeed Ewan after the coach announced last summer that 2010 would be his final season, Aguano had to go through the hiring process which lasted longer than many expected. “The process made me a better person and I think it’s going to make me a better coach,” Aguano said in the Arizona Republic article. “I had to be prepared. Every single interview I went through was a tough one. I knew the competition was tough. It made me go back and do research on how to make this program better.” Camille Casteel, superintendent of the Chandler Unified School District, offered the position to Aguano on Thursday.
