Bridgeport officially dismissed Jack Cochran as coach. He hasn’t been with the team since a Week 3 loss to Norwalk. He was 2-1.


Jack Cochran is officially out as the head coach at Harding, according to a story by Chris Elsberry in Connecticut Post.

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.

    Sorry, Ray, I disagree. I think they way this whole thing went down at Harding, he’ll never be given the opportunity again….too much mystery, no one really is saying what happened…….can’t see how any AD would take this possible situation on again.

    to much of a loose canon. had to deal with this whack job in the ECC for years. good football coach, and kids love to play for him BUT he’s a classic example of how not to go about your business.
