This time, it's newly appointed Chino Hills High School basketball coach Dennis Latimore.

LaVar Ball, the father of Lakers rookie Lonzo and UCLA freshman LiAngelo, announced a major decision in the basketball development of his youngest son, LaMelo. "So therefore I'm going to home school him and make him the best basketball player ever".

Chino Hills coach Stephan Gilling was sacked after just one season on the job, and LaVar disputed reports that he was responsible for the coaching change.

"I'm not dealing with the coach over there", the elder Ball told ESPN. "He's on track for UCLA, but he doesn't have to be dealing with those knuckleheads".

While losing Ball will be a major blow to Chino Hills, the team still has 4-star recruit Onyeka Okongwu, who is ranked as the third-best player in the state of California in 2019, just a single spot behind Ball.

This really isn't all that surprising, given the direction the senior Ball has had his son running towards the past year or so.

Will he then get housed when he plays real games?

All this seems a bit fitting for Chino Hills, which reacted to LaVar's ludicrous public criticism of previous coach Stephan Gillig as he led the program to a 30-3 record in 2016-17 by opening the position, meaning Chino will have its third coach in three years despite extraordinary recent success. "So they can't stop me by saying, 'OK, he's not going to the NCAA.' Who cares?"

The 16-year-old, listed as the 17th-best prospect in the national composite rankings at 247 Sports, will instead be home-schooled for the next two years and won't play competitively again until his spring travel team gets underway.

LaVar Ball is pulling his youngest son out of high school.

LaVar will now homeschool LaMelo for his remaining two years of high school.
