Flagstaff High School announced the hiring of Leonard Lopez as the school's head softball coach on Thursday.
Lopez, who spent more than 20 years at Ajo High School as a teacher and coach, most recently worked for the Arizona Interscholastic Association as an official.
Former Eagles manager Rudy Baca departed the team and joined the coaching staff at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott. The Eagles finished 7-11 overall and 5-7 in the Grand Canyon Region last season. In the three seasons before 2017, Flagstaff won more than 10 games and reached the state tournament twice.
