Monday guided the Herd two seasons ago when head coach Rudy Ortega, Jr., wanted a year off. Monday was rewarded for his efforts that season by being named Delta Valley Conference coach of the year. The Herd was 12-12 overall, 6-4 in conference play.
Ortega offered his resignation prior to the end of the school year and Monday took over the team's summer program, even coaching the team recently at the Sheldon-Monterey Trail Summer Jam.
“It’s not that I’m worried about wasting my time,” Monday told Citizen sports editor Jon Gudel. “I like being around the guys. I like being out here coaching. If I’m not the guy, so be it. I still want the program and these kids to be successful.”
Bradley coached Valley's program between 2008 and 2012.
