In a way, this new job for Dominick Romero was sort of inevitable.
He’s been working his way from south to north most of his coaching career — and on Monday, he landed his latest position, taking over the Manzano High School boys basketball program.
“I’m excited,” said Romero, 47. “It’s a great opportunity to walk into Manzano with all those talented underclassmen coming in.”
Manzano marks Romero’s fifth head coaching stop in boys basketball.
His journey as a boys head coach began at Cobre, then later continued at Hot Springs and Socorro.
He was Valencia High’s first head coach, from 2008-12. And he also once was the head women’s coach at Western New Mexico.
Now he moves into Albuquerque at the highest prep level.
