Chad Arneson Resigns as Girls Volleyball Coach at Santa Barbara High

He will remain as head coach of the boys volleyball team

Chad Arneson is stepping down as coach of the girls volleyball team at Santa Barbara High after one season.

"Unfortunately, as you know it’s very difficult to be in two places at the same time and give the girls and boys volleyball programs my full attention," he said.

Arneson will remain as the school's boys volleyball coach and will continue working with special needs students on campus. He plans to pursue a teaching credential in physical education.

"I want to thank Joe Chenoweth and Dr. (John) Becchio for giving me the opportunity to be the head coach for the girls volleyball program at Santa Barbara High," Arneson said of the Santa Barbara athletic director and principal.

Arneson took over the girls varsity job from John Gannon, who stepped down after 11 seasons at the helm following the 2016 season. He served as Gannon's assistant and coached lower level teams.

The Dons struggled during the season, winning only one Channel League match.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
