It has been more than a month since Canyon boys soccer lost a spot in the CIF-Southern Section postseason and a Foothill League title because it played an ineligible player.
Canyon High officials have stayed quiet in the last five weeks, despite the appeals by many Canyon High parents to right the wrongs that happened under head coach Khris Savage's watch.
Some parents even took their complaints to the William S. Hart Union High School District board - complaints ranging from uniform issues, missed tournaments and a lack of leadership from their coach.
For us at The Signal, the straw that broke the camel's back came prior to the Foothill League season when Canyon head coach Khris Savage told us he didn't want to talk to us for our Foothill League Preview because of what one of his players said in a story the prior season. That prevented us from previewing this year's team properly.
On top of that, Savage continued to act unprofessionally toward opposing coaches and players with his displays after victories in which he would run underneath his players' "tunnel" from sideline to sideline.
“We want this resolved so other families don’t have to suffer this in the future,” one parent told us.
Savage told us: “If they want me to step down, then I will do it graciously. I certainly didn’t try to mislead or do something illegal.”
This doesn't make Canyon look any better for dragging this along. Savage should do the right thing and resign as head coach.
