    Too bad Coach Palladino didn’t stay around for one more win. This guy is a great coach, who always did things the right way. He will sorely be missed on the sidelines

    I don’t see Coach Gardner from Shelton on this list?My daughter is a former cheerleader there and had to sit through 4 seasons of unwatchable basketball.Hopefully the AD looks into the entire basketball program including the girls and finally clean house.

    Coach p back?? Where? Hope so. He’s a great coach and even better person. I couldn’t believe he retired 1 game short of 500.
