|Richard spearheading Monterey baseball|
Eric Richard returned to Monterey High School as a teacher this school year after spending 14 years coaching football, basketball and baseball at Monterey, Harrisonburg and Block high schools.
"I wasn't planning on coaching anything, but I have two young sons who wanted to come to school here," Richard said.
Richard, 36, was called back into the coaching ranks under the most tragic of circumstances when longtime Monterey baseball coach Hank Zizzi died of a heart attack last November.
Richard is taking over as head baseball coach at Monterey. He will be assisted by Cary Shively.
"When you think about Monterey baseball, you think about 'Coach Z,'" Richard said. "I'm coming behind a legend. I am very humbled to take this position. You can't replace someone like that, not only his baseball knowledge, but the character and personality he had. I just am going to try and continue doing some of the thing he did when he was here. He did a great job."
Zizzi, who was buried in his Monterey baseball jersey, died of a heart attack at the age of 65.
He coached the Monterey baseball team since 1992.
"[Coach Z' is sorely missed by the Monterey community," Richard said. "What he did here goes deeper than baseball. This is a great school and community. I am excited about the opportunity to work back down here."
Richard, a graduate of Block High, began coaching football and basketball at Block as an assistant coach in the 1980s.
