Report: Berlin athletic director Dan Scavone to resign

(WTNH)–Berlin High School athletic director Dan Scavone will step down at the end of this school year, according to multiple reports. Scavone submitted his resignation to the school, citing health reasons.

“I’ll be in education 26 years,” Scavone told the Hartford Courant. “I’m turning 54 and have some health issues that stress does not coincide with. The job has evolved into a very stressful position in the administrative world. I want to focus on my health and my family.”

He also said that the timing of his decision did not have anything to do with the scandal involving the football team, as head coach John Capodice was let go following a CIAC investigation into whether or not he recruited players from New Britain.

The team was forced to forefit seven wins and ruled ineligible for the state playoffs.

“The timing of my resignation may seem linked to the football situation, but it was not,” Scavone told the Courant. “That was one of many stressful situations in the course of being an A.D. In fact, I was considering resigning last spring and summer.”
