Perkins Mater Dei bound

Former Costa Mesa High boys athletic director and head football coach

Dave Perkins is in the process of being hired as an assistant coach

with Mater Dei High freshman team, Monarchs Coach Bruce Rollinson

confirmed Thursday.

Rollinson said Perkins is filling out the necessary paper work to

become a walk-on assistant.

"Ideally, we would like to have him as an outside linebacker and

tight end coach," Rollinson said.

Perkins led the Mustangs to a 20-12 record during his three years

at the helm, including a Golden West League title in 2002. He was

fired July 23 over what he said was a misunderstanding involving

funds from a summer football camp.

He accumulated a 17-13-1 record as Estancia's head coach from

1998-2000 before taking charge of the Mesa program.
