Cheshire High School has, temporarily at least, filled its head coaching vacancy.
And, of course, they’re keeping it in-house.
The school is expected to announce today that wide receivers and junior varsity coach Don Drust is taking over for ousted/resigned coach Mark Ecke on an interim basis.
Drust was a player in the late 1990s, while Ecke was coach. Like Ecke before him, Drust doesn’t work in the school system. The Register reported that the staff, including adviser and former associate coach Rich Puliciano, will remain aboard.
It wasn’t immediately clear on how long Drust would remain interim coach, since Cheshire has yet to release details (as of Friday 4:30 p.m.).
However, Curren reported on Twitter that Durst will coach the team for the 2012 season and reevaluated after the season.
