Dibble takes position as high school coach
Former Major Leaguer Rob Dibble has taken the job as head baseball coach at Calabasas High School, which is located north of Los Angeles, according to multiple reports.

The two-time National League All-Star and 1990 World Series champion was the co-MVP of the '90 National League Championship series, along with teammate Randy Myers.

Dubbed one of the "Nasty Boys," Dibble spent six of his seven Major League seasons with the Reds. He was 26-23 in 354 career games with the Cincinnati, posting a 2.74 ERA while there.

Dibble also split time between the White Sox and Brewers in 1995, when he went 1-2 with a 7.18 ERA in 31 total games. After his retirement, Dibble spent time in broadcasting, including a stint as an analyst for the Nationals.

"I have lived and breathed baseball for 40 years, and I hope to take the many things I have learned -- from my dad to my high school coach to the many coaches at the Major League level -- and give everything I can to the Calabasas baseball program," Dibble said in a news release. "This next season will be all about the young men who will play here and the experiences we will share, on and off the field. This had been a dream of mine for a long time, I just wish the season started today."

Dibble had been the pitching coach at Oaks Christian High School in Westlake Village, Calif., the past two years.

Eight-year coach Ed Edsall resigned from his post at Calabasas at the end of this past season, according to a report from ESPNLosAngeles.com. He had coached the team alongside two-time American League Cy Young Award winner Bret Saberhagen before Edsall took over on his own in 2007. The team was 8-19 overall last season, finishing seventh in league play.
