Chris Nordstrom said Wednesday he has resigned as basketball coach at Orange Lutheran after 16 years. Athletic director Paul Jones said the school will launch an immediate search for a replacement.
Nordstrom and Mater Dei coach Gary McKnight are the only two coaches to have remained in the Trinity League since it began in 2006-07. He said he wants to pursue new challenges and didn’t want to surprise Orange Lutheran in the middle of the school year while he sought a new position.
Nordstrom was an assistant to McKight when he came to Orange Lutheran and helped make the Lancers a competitive team in the Trinity League. He had one win over the Monarchs, who haven’t lost very many games in league play.

As of today I have decided to resign as the basketball coach at OLu. I appreciate all of the players, families and supporters who made this an amazing opportunity. I know that God has plans for myself and family and I look forward to the next chapter.— Chris Nordstrom (@olubbcoach) August 7, 2019
