After just one year at Socorro, Peter Morales has taken the head coaching job at Coronado High School. Considered one of the top up and coming young coaches in El Paso, Morales was excited for the opportunity to coach the west side school.
"I've been at places where the talent wasn't as much but the kids, they made up for it with their heart. If I can combine those things with hard work and heart I think we can go places," said the new Thunderbird coach.
Morales takes over for Tim Mcnally who retired after leading the T-Birds to a 18 and 11 record this past season. In his one season with Socorro, Morales coached the Bulldogs to a 13 and 17 record. Before that he was the head coach at Bowie High School and lead the Bears to a State Sweet Sixteen birth in 2009.
