Mark Kaanapu made his first official trip as head football coach to the Merced College campus on Friday and the school rolled out the red carpet.MC athletic director Steve Cassady served as chauffeur, guiding Kaanapu, his wife and their daughter from building to building as they became acquainted with their new home.
After the tour, Kaanapu had meetings scheduled with the school’s returning coaches and his new players.
"This has been as warm a reception as I've seen anywhere," Kaanapu said. "The school's done a great job of making sure I meet everyone I need to meet and just making us feel at home."
