Los Angeles Southwest College names new football coach

Local college standout Nate Turner to lead Cougars

For the first time in more than three decades, the Los Angeles Southwest College (LASC) football program will have a new head coach on its sidelines this fall. Henry Washington has announced that he will step aside from the position, and the college has announced he will be replaced by former NFL wide receiver Nate Turner, a one-time collegiate standout on the gridiron and in the classroom, who most recently was the head coach at Taft High School in Los Angeles.
