LaVar Ball plans on pulling his son, LaMelo, out of Chino Hills High School and will home-school him for LaMelo's final two years before college.
"I'm not dealing with the coach over there," LaVar told ESPN. "I'm not dealing with the administration over there. I don't want no distractions on Melo. So therefore I'm going to home-school him and make him the best basketball player ever."
Chino Hills hired Dennis Latimore as its new head coach in May, replacing Stephan Gilling, who was the head coach for one season. Gilling replaced Steve Baik after the 2015-16 season, with Baik stepping down despite Chino Hills having an unbeaten season. Latimore played basketball at Arizona and Notre Dame.
LaMelo said Monday was his last day at Chino Hills, but is excited about this change in his scholastic life, "because I can spend all my time now and dedication into it instead of going to school and doing book work," LaMelo Ball told ESPN.
