Scott Drootin, co-coach at Calabasas High the past four years, has been hired as baseball coach at Chaminade High.

He replaces Denny Barrett, who resigned in June to become coach at Glendale College.

Drootin, 43, teamed with coaching partner Rick Nathanson to lead Calabasas to Frontier League titles in 1993, ’95 and ‘96, including undefeated league seasons the past two years. In 1995, the Coyotes were 25-0 before losing a playoff opener to Rialto.

Drootin will continue to work as a walk-on.

“I knew [Chaminade] was a place I wanted to coach,” Drootin said. “It’s a new opportunity and a great system, and I’ve coached some of the kids in their younger years. We did great things at Calabasas, but it was just time to make a move.”


Chaminade was 17-7 last season and second in the Mission League.
