Basketball: Camacho out as Forest Lake Christian coach

Former Forest Lake Christian boys basketball coach Jason Camacho addresses his team during a game last season. Camacho was let go as head coach of the Falcons this week.

Forest Lake Christian High School Athletic Director Steve Koch confirmed Friday that Jason Camacho was let go as head coach of the boys varsity basketball team.

"We have another coach in mind and wanted to go in a different direction," Koch said. Koch would not disclose who the other coach is.

"Jason has done some wonderful things for the program," Koch added. "We love him and appreciate all that he has done."

The firing comes on the heels of one of Forest Lake Christian's best seasons in recent memory and just a month after Camacho was named the 2013-14 Central Valley California League Co-Coach of the Year for boys basketball season

"Sucks, but it's all good," Camacho said in a text to The Union. "Just waiting to see what the Lord has in plan for me."

Camacho was an off-campus coach who assisted former boys basketball coach Dave Thomas for many years before taking over the head coaching position on his own two seasons ago.
