First-year Servite football coach Chris Reinert turned to the college ranks to find his offensive and defensive coordinators.

The Friars have hired former Saginaw Valley State assistant coach Cheyne Lacanaria as offensive coordinator and former University of Chicago assistant Jon Davidson as defensive coordinator, Reinert said.

Reinert, a graduate of Servite, arrived from the college ranks in December to replace Troy Thomas. Reinert had served as the special teams coach at the University of Colorado.

Reinert’s staff also includes the return of Frank Kalil as an assistant. Kalil will team with former Los Alamitos, UCLA and NFL lineman Alex Redmond to coach the offensive line.

Kalil’s sons Matt and Ryan Kalil were standout linemen at Servite who went on to play at USC and in the NFL.

Former Golden West College assistant Savea Harrington will coach the defensive line.

Denny Flanagan (Edison) will coach Servite’s freshman team.

The Friars are coming off a 1-9 season, the worst in school history.

Thomas and Servite “parted ways” after the campaign, ending his second tenure at the school after five seasons. In 2021, the Friars finished as the CIF-SS Division 1 runner-up to Mater Dei.

Servite opens the upcoming season by playing host to Silverado on Aug. 18 at Cerritos College.
