He'll replace Jesse Formaker, a highly-successful coach for the Wildcats, leading them to two Sac-Joaquin Section championship games, who resigned last week.
|Ken Manfredi, now Franklin's basketball coach|
Manfredi is a former player at UC Davis who made Monterey Trail's team very competitive, but never could seem to get the Mustangs past the first one or two rounds. Though his clubs played hard, he never seemed to get the big, tall basketball player which Franklin always seem to have.
He'll take over a Franklin program that was 10-4 and second place in the Delta League a year ago.
Also, the school announced that former football coach Mike Johnson will take over the girls' basketball program. Johnson had resigned the football coaching job earlier this year.
