(WTNH)–Another one of the state’s great coaches is calling it a career. On Wednesday, Notre Dame of West Haven football coach Tom Marcucci announced his retirement as head coach.
Marcucci, who is 68, will stay on as the school’s athletic director.
He’s been coaching at Notre Dame of West Haven since 1970, with head coaching stints from 1982 to 1999 and 2009 up until now.
Marcucci won two state titles during his time in West Haven.
So what is he going to do now?
“Well I don’t have any hobbies thats one of my problems,” Marcucci said. “That’s why I’m going to stay on as the AD. I really don’t golf, I don’t play cards, I really just have my family and the school, so I don’t know about all my extra free time.”
“I certainly can’t work around the house because I can’t do one thing. I didn’t even know there were two types of screwdrivers, so I have to figure out what to do, but I’ll stay busy,” he said.
We’re going to miss the coach on the sidelines.
