Rich won’t return to coach Londonderry football
Rich said he was told by school officials Tuesday that he did not have the support of the school board.
“I met with the principal (Jason Parent) and the AD (Howard Sobolov) and I was told that the school board would not support their recommendation for me as head coach for next fall,” Rich said Thursday night. “It was a complete surprise to me. I do think I had the support of the principal and the athletic director.”
Londonderry finished with a 4-6 record last season following a loss to Pinkerton in the Division I South championship game.
“A lot of kids were upset,” he said. “It was a tough meeting to have.
“I’d like to say thank you to the kids and the coaching staff I worked with. A lot of people put in a lot of hours.”
