Philadelphia Eagles Coach Andy Reid shook up his staff on Tuesday with the firing of defensive coordinator Juan Castillo following his team's 23-20 home loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, in which the Eagles squandered a 20-6 lead in the fourth quarter. Castillo was replaced with secondary coach Todd Bowles. “I want to make it clear that I have nothing but the ultimate respect for Juan Castillo as a coach and as a person,” Reid, who played for Glendale Community College, said in a press conference on Tuesday announcing the change.

TEMPLE CITY — In the 10th contest of the season, the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team seemingly put together a complete game.

"I liked everything about our team," Zargarian said after Crescenta Valley coasted to a 75-34 victory against Gabrielino in an opening-round game of the La Salle/Temple City Holiday Basketball Classic at Temple City High.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - With the St. Francis High basketball team assured to finish in sixth place in the ultra-competitive Mission League, co-Coach Ray O'Brien said he still likes the Golden Knights' chances to be a part of the CIF Southern Section Division III-A playoffs next week. Though the Golden Knights will not grab one of the four automatic playoffs spots from arguably one of the most difficult leagues in Southern California, O'Brien said he will petition to the CIF office in the next several days and make a case that the Knights belong in the 32-team playoff bracket.

GLENDALE — It's quite possible that Brett Kanda once had two eagles during the same round. He couldn't recall. Now, he won't have to wonder anymore. Kanda posted eagles on the 10th and 15th holes during the second of two rounds of stroke play Friday in the 108th annual Southern California Golf Assn. Amateur Championship at the Victoria Club in Riverside. "I don't think I'd ever had two eagles in the same round before," said Kanda, who birdied those two holes during the first round and is the lone local resident to compete in the event.

First-year Estancia High coach Brian Barnes, and many of his players, learned much from their varsity football debut last week. But they will have to learn about tonight's opponent, Huntington Park from the CIF Los Angeles City Section, as the game unfolds. Kickoff is 7 p.m. at Orange Coast College. "I haven't heard anything about them," Barnes said of the Spartans, who are opening their season after a 9-2 campaign in 2004 that included an Eastern League championship.

Coach Brian Barnes said his Estancia High football players are tired of waiting for their first victory of the season. Apparently, Buena Park, which plays host to the nonleague clash with the Eagles Friday at 7, reached that point last week. The Coyotes ended their 15-game losing streak with a 7-6 double-overtime triumph over Century in their opener Friday night. Though the Estancia losing streak spans only the first two games of this season, Barnes believes it needs to be brought to a halt.

LA CAÑADA - On the verge of the halfway point in the competitive Mission League, the St. Francis High basketball team sought a trademark league victory. Backed by a tenacious defensive effort in the second half and some late clutch shooting from its top player, the Golden Knights accomplished that rousing feat Monday. Kyle Leufroy finished with 19 points and St. Francis yielded just 14 second-half points en route to a 54-46 Mission League home victory against Chaminade, ranked No. 1 in the latest CIF Southern Section Division III-A poll and 10th in the state by Cal-Hi Sports.

The Crescenta Valley High girls' basketball team was held scoreless for the first 5 minutes 31 seconds of its West Coast Holiday Festival second-round meeting with Chaminade, while giving up the game's first 13 points and trailed by double digits for most of the 63-49 loss to the Eagles on Friday evening at Burroughs High. After falling behind, 13-0, the Falcons settled down and played effectively, but Chaminade never let up and will advance to the quarterfinals of the tournament on Saturday.

Andy Reid is apparently a hot commodity when it comes to open jobs in the NFL. Only days after being fired by the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, the former Glendale Community College player is rumored to be in the running for two new coaching positions. Just Tuesday, Reid was thought to be heading to Arizona to take over the struggling Cardinals organization. Media outlets are reporting that Reid has an interview with Cardinals management Thursday. ESPN even reported that there was a “95%” chance Reid would be the Cardinals next head coach, but the broadcasting giant has recently backpedaled from that statement.
