The former major league pitcher and professional broadcaster was just fired from his gig as head coach of a high school baseball team in Calabasas, Calif. after just ten games. Dibble's boys stumbled to a 2-8 start, and he was canned after being ejected from a loss on Tuesday. From the Los Angeles Times:
"They said I wasn't a good fit," Dibble said in a text message Tuesday night. "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."
What a bummer for Dibble. Maybe that deal with Compass Media will lead to his next big broadcasting break, though. We hear there's an opening at Fox.
