Dave Mastroianni, who coached Hand’s football team to two state titles in three seasons, resigned as head football coach Tuesday, multiple sources confirmed to the New Haven Register.
Mastroianni cited ongoing health issues as the primary reason for his departure in a resignation letter submitted Tuesday, according to one source.
Hand has scheduled a meeting with team parents and returning players for Thursday to discuss the coaching change and the state of the program going forward.
Mastroianni declined to comment when reached Tuesday afternoon. Thomas Scarice, the Madison Superintendent of Schools, also declined comment.
Several sources indicated that seven-time championship coach Steve Filippone could be tapped to lead the program on an interim basis.
Filippone, who retired in 2016 after coaching the program to a 222-78-5 record over 27 seasons, also said he was aware of Mastroianni’s resignation and that he would consider returning to the helm if needed.
