WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)–Hold off on the ice cream cake and the retirement cards.
It appears that this may not be West Haven High School football coach Ed McCarthy’s last season on the sidelines after all.
According to Morelli, McCarthy has yet to hand the school a resignation letter. Superintendent of Schools Neil Cavallaro said there had been some conversations regarding McCarthy’s replacement, but since he hadn’t yet received a letter, those conversations hadn’t moved past the initial stage.
In the article, McCarthy wouldn’t address his future, saying only: “My thoughts are with the team, trying to get them ready for the (Fairfield) Prep game (on Thanksgiving).”
McCarthy, 68, is in his 44th season as a head coach, and 32nd at West Haven. He spent 12 years at St. Joseph in Trumbull prior to taking over with the Blue Devils.
He is the state’s all-time wins leader with 331 victories.
