Another coaching vacancy unearthed: East Haven

|

This nutty offseason hasn’t hit its zenith just yet.

East Haven coach Greg Volpe has resigned at East Haven after four seasons, bringing the current total of high school coaching vacancies back to 19 for the time being.

The news was first reported Monday by Ray Curren, aka @CurrenSCC on Twitter, and followed up by Joe “Hoops” Morelli (with an assist to Jennifer Swift) of the New Haven Register. Apparently Volpe quit a month ago. Why it took a month for reporters to dig it up, I don’t know.

East Haven principal Vin DeNuzzo took the cryptic “It’s a personnel matter,” tact when asked by NHR. Volpe didn’t respond to a Register phone message.

East Haven was 1-9 last year.

    east haven has been a disaster since they fired rusty dunne in 2002. the ad is an unqualified guy who made a big deal about hiring “a national championship coach” over a pool of some pretty good guys. the next guy in has a lot of work to do. the program or lack there of is the worst in the scc.

    I agree @old school. East Haven football has struggled very badly since Rusty Dunne was let go. I believe East Haven has won like 11 games in last 11 years. Coach Volpe did not run a consistent program- summer weight lifting was non existent- zero film was watched during the season and overall Coach Volpe should have been let go a few years ago until the East Haven board poorly handled trying to dismiss him then.

    The new coach will have a lot of hard work ahead of him and East Haven needs to find a guy who will build a program. Coach Volpe was only involved during the fall and that is debatable.
