Another January, another sudden basketball coaching departure.
Los Alamos High School announced Monday afternoon that boys head basketball coach Fil Dominguez resigned his post earlier in the day.
Dominguez cited work responsibilities and the health of a family member as his reasons for leaving the team.
Longtime Los Alamos assistant coach, Mike Kluk, was named the interim head coach of the Hilltopper boys. Athletic director Vicki Nelms made the announcement to the team prior to their morning practice.
Kluk, who has been a top assistant on both the boys and girls teams for better than 20 years, said he felt a little “shell-shocked” by the announcement of Dominguez’s departure.
“This all happened so fast, but the rest of us coaches are going to try to pick it up,” Kluk said. “We’ll make some changes as we go. There probably won’t be any big changes, it’s a little late in the year for that, but maybe some little changes.”
A message left for Dominguez wasn’t returned as of press time.
Dominguez leaves a program that has struggled for several seasons and, in recent games, has been knocked around considerably.
