Guidici named football coach at Menlo College

He's a 13-year veteran of the Oaks' athletic department

Long-time athletic department member Fred Guidici was named interim head football coach at Menlo College on Wednesday.

Guidici served as Menlo's special teams coordinator and director of football operations while also fulfilling the role of recruiting coordinator within the athletic department for the past 13 years.

In related news, Oaks' men's basketball coach Brandon Laird will assume the role of assistant athletic director and softball coach Danielle Stines will serve as the athletic department's senior women's administrator. They will remain coaches in their respective sports as well.

Guidici, the sixth head coach at Menlo since it became a four-year institution, takes over the program from Mark Kaanapu, who was named head coach at Merced College last week after eight years in charge of Menlo's program.

Guidici began his coaching career at his alma mater, Blackford High (1984-89) in San Jose, before moving up to the collegiate ranks at Santa Clara (1990-92) and Stanford (1993-94). Following a year with the Oakland Raiders (1995), Guidici assisted with the Arena Football League's San Jose SaberCats (1996-98) during his first three seasons at Menlo.

Guidici will continue as recruiting coordinator for Menlo Athletics.
