Former major leaguer Rob Dibble, in his first season as coach at Calabasas, said in a text he has been removed as coach. He was ejected from Tuesday’s 8-1 loss to Agoura in the sixth inning.

‘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.’

Former coach Ed Edsall is expected to step in for Dibble. -- Eric Sondheimer
