Branford to hire John Limone as next coach

John Limone will likely be named the next head coach at Branford, according to a report in The Day of New London’s Shore Publishing division.

Limone, 29, is a Branford graduate who played quarterback on longtime coach Len Bonn’s final team in 2001. He went on to play at Marist.

He joined the football staff in 2004. Most recently, he served as the team’s defensive coordinator under former coach Mike Tracy, who resigned earlier this year.

From Chris Piccirillo’s article in The Day of New London:

“Branford football is very important to me and I’ve wanted to coach this team since the time I played here so it really is a dream come true. I want to keep pushing this program forward, get more involved with the youth level, and continue having kids do things the right way so we can hopefully keep our tradition going.

His hire will bring the statewide coaching vacancies down to a manageable 12, including Ludlowe, Stamford and Bunnell.
