Ed Italo will not return to Nordoff High School's track and field program next year, according to Ojai Unified School District (OUSD) superintendent Hank Bangser.

Italo, who saw enormous success as Nordhoff's sprint and middle-distance coach, informed Bangser via email Wednesday that, “… he had changed his mind about participating in the process of creating a new track and field program,” said Bangser.

Bangser confirmed he held a productive, two-hour meeting with Italo, Nordhoff assistant principal and athletic administrator Dave Monson, and Nordhoff principal Greg Bayless Monday morning.
