Pleasant Grove High School has named Nolan Dunkly as its new varsity baseball coach.
Dunkly, a former football and baseball player at Elk Grove High School, has been involved in the baseball program at Pleasant Grove for the past seven years, coaching the Junior Varsity teams.
He has been teaching Social Studies at PGHS since 2006 and will continue in that role.
"We are excited and confident that Nolan will continue the great baseball traditions established by Rob Rinaldi over the years," the school's athletic director, Bruce Belden, said. "Coach Dunkly is excited to meet with the student/athletes on day one of school and begin preparing for fall baseball."
Rinaldi resigned a month ago citing burn-out. He had been the school's only varsity baseball coach, coming on board when the school opened nine years ago.
