Sims, who was hired in 2012, navigated a 2-8 season for the Spartans in his first year after an abbreviated offseason with the program.

This past 2013 campaign, La Cañada went 5-6, with key wins over South Pasadena and Temple City in Rio Hondo League play to advance to the CIF Southern Section Mid-Valley Division playoffs for the first time since 2010.

The Spartans lost in the first round, 54-3, to fourth-seeded Paraclete, which was set to play in the division title game Friday night against San Dimas.
