Rob Dibble Fired From High School Coaching Job Because He Sucked At It

Rob Dibble has something new to add to the list of things he sucks at, which now reads: not being a misogynist, knowing anything about arm injuries, and coaching high school baseball.


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.
