Cochran, who hasn’t coached the team since a loss to Norwalk in Week 3, was let go during at a board of education meeting on Monday. Interim coach Eddie Santiago, who has led the team since Cochran left, was elevated to head coach, the Post reported.
Cochran, who has won eight state championships at three different schools, told New Haven Register in October that a health issue prevented him from coaching. Bridgeport Superintendent Paul Vallas later confirmed to the Post that the issue was heart-related.
Citywide athletic director Neil Kavey declined to comment to the Post on the matter. No reason was given for his dismissal.
