POLL: Should Vince Catanzaro be reinstated?
Catanzaro, who won more than 200 games during his tenure as coach for the Upper Dublin girl's basketball team, was forced to resign two weeks ago.
The Upper Dublin Patch has learned that a group of Vince Catanzaro supporters will once again attend tonight's meeting of the School Board of Upper Dublin, in the hopes of having the board overturn their previous decision to decline to renew the long-time coach's contract.
During last week's UDSD workshop meeting, a group of family members, basketball players, and parents attempted to convince the board to change their minds and reinstate Catanzaro, but the board stood their ground and declined to take any action to reverse their previous decision.
Though no explanation was given as to why the board declined to renew Catanzaro's contract, a report in the Ambler Gazette references comments made by supporters stating the forced resignation came after a parent complained about Catanzaro yelling at a player.
Tonight's school board meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Upper Dublin High School cafeteria, but thanks to our poll, you don't have to wait to express your opinion.
