According to a report from the Hartford Courant, Manchester coach Marco Pizzoferrato has resigned, saying “he wants to spend more time with his young family.”
Pizzoferrato was 35-26 in six years with no playoff appearances.
Led by Maryland recruit and TE Andrew Isaacs, Manchester was 6-3 last year, which was shortened to nine games due to an accidental drowning of a Manchester student the week of the Thanksgiving game.
In 2010, Pizzoferrato outed then-Southington coach D.J. Hernandez for using one of Manchester’s lost play-wristbands against them during a game.
The apparent vacancy brings the dwindling list back up to
four three from a high of 20 at one time.
There have been 30 coaching vacancies overall.
This list doesn’t include Conard, which will reportedly replace longtime coach Rob Cersosimo with his son, former UConn assistant coach Matt Cersosimo.
