Cronin not leaving Cardinal Newman

Part of the job description for a sportswriter in 2009 involves chasing down rumors born on Internet message boards.
As a result of a few comments posted here this week, Cardinal Newman coach Paul Cronin has been answering the same question from friends, colleagues and even his dad: Is he leaving Cardinal Newman?
Tonight it was my turn to ask Cronin, who seemed bemused, confused and mildly frustrated by the talk of him leaving the school at the end of the season. He said it’s not the first time people have speculated that he’s on his way out the door.
“I’m not going anywhere else,” Cronin said. “I’m going to stay at Newman for as long as I can, until they fire me. I love the school and I love Sonoma County.”
