Just to clarify all the rumors spreading on this blog concerning the Canon-McMillan High School baseball coaching position - as of last night, the position had not been filled.
No doubt, Bucci's timing was not the best for Canon-McMillan, especially the players. While athletic director Guy Montecalvo, the school board and others want to fill the position as quickly as possible, they want the best available candidate.
According to today's Observer-Reporter, a new coach can not be approved until March 16. The first game of the high school season is March 20.
"We've got Jack Smarslak and Justin White working with the team now," Montecalvo said. "They've been assistant coaches and they're both teachers here, but they really aren't interested in being the head coach."
