Edgar Soto, who held the athletic director position for 11 years, is moving on to become president of the Desert Vista Campus. 

Monaco started at Pima in 2011, and will be the school’s final football coach as the program ends this season.

After Pima Community College Chancellor Lee Lambert announced the appointment during a press conference, he said that more sports programs probably are going to be terminated at Pima.

No specific sports programs were named, however, and a timeline was not given by the college’s administration.
