Craig Bruno has resigned as Naugatuck’s football coach after four seasons, he announced today.
Bruno, who came over in 2013 after a successful 12-year career at Bunnell, coached the Greyhounds to a 30-12 record, including a state playoff berth in 2014 — Naugatuck’s first since 2001. The Greyhounds lost to Darien in the Class L-Large semifinals.
Naugatuck finished 7-3 last year, a victory short of clinching another playoff berth.
“Our 30-12 regular season record was exciting and I know the coaches and players are proud of that,” he said in a statement delivered via text message. “For the returning players, I am certain you will maintain that success and continue to uphold a strong winning tradition.
“For me, I am confident I will pursue coaching in the future. Finally, I am thankful to Naugatuck High School for the opportunity and grateful for my four years.”
He did not give a reason for his resignation in the statement.
Bruno’s career record is 124-49, including two state championships at Bunnell in 2006 and 2007.
