Derby announced a head coaching vacancy for its football program today on the CIAC website, ending the tenure of Carmen DiCenso who had presided over the program since 2004. DiCenso was 20-41 at Derby, which became a co-op with O’Brien Tech in 2007.
DiCenso was one of the school’s most outspoken critics of its membership in the SCC. He helped lobby for a move to the Naugatuck Valley League. Derby made the switch earlier this year and went 4-6 in its inaugural season.
We’ll have more on this development later.
Derby/O’Brien Tech’s vacancy is the fifth of the region. Fairfield Prep, McMahon, Stratford and New Fairfield are the others.
