The former ESPN analyst will be heading back to the sidelines, this time as coach, where he as no prior experience. Pierce, who hails from Compton, California, has no ties to the school but still managed to beat out two current assistants to become the first outside at the school since 1971.
Long Beach Poly is regarded as one of the finer prep schools in the nation. Former alumni include DeSean Jackson, Mercedes Lewis, and Willie McGinest.
A press conference to announce Pierce's hiring is scheduled for 2:00 PM local time on Thursday. He will be the 25th head coach in the Jackrabbit's 106-year history.
