Calabasas high school in California has fired Rob Dibble as head baseball coach after 10 games on the job.
The team went 2-8 under Dibble, who was fired from his Nationals television analyst gig two years ago following some headline-making and mind-numbing comments about, among other things, Stephen Strasburg and female baseball fans.
Here’s the explanation Dibble gave to Eric Sondheimer of the Los Angeles Times:
They said I wasn’t a good fit. I just got a job calling Angels games for Compass Media. In giving some early notice I couldn’t continue as head coach after the season I was asked to step down immediately. I’m shocked, very sad and will miss the kids because the only reason I took the job was to help them play at the next level.
So basically he planned to leave the job for another television gig (sorry, Angels fans!) after the high school season was over and the school told him not to bother sticking around in the meantime.
