Less than a week after Mike Jacot left Orange Lutheran to be the head coach at Buchanan High School in Clovis, Calif., Dee Meza has been formally introduced as the defensive coordinator at Orange Lutheran.
Meza served as the defensive coordinator under head coach Jim Kunau after being a defensive backs coach. Meza played at Orange Lutheran under Kunau as well.
"[Dee] has an intimate understanding of the tradition of Orange Lutheran football as both a player and a coach, and is a respected member of the football community," said Orange Lutheran head coach Chuck Petersen. "I'm excited for our defensive players to be lead by a true Lancer for life."
Orange Lutheran missed the playoffs for the third consecutive year last year, the first year under Petersen.
