In an surprise, Jamar Greene has been named the next head coach at Stamford, our own Dave Ruden reported this morning.
Greene was chosen among a list of finalists that included Staples freshman coach and Stamford teacher Jon Boone and New Canaan assistant Chris Silvestri.
Greene, the first African-American head coach in Stamford football history according to Ruden’s story, is a 1995 Stamford graduate who served as the offensive coordinator for Westhill last season. He was the Stamford freshman coach two year before that.
He will take over for Bryan Hocter, who resigned after two three seasons. Stamford is coming off a 2-8 season.
Westhill had a breakthrough 6-4 2012 season, but forfeited four victories due to the use of an ineligible player.
