Resignation: The Paul Latino era in girls basketball at Highland is over nearly as soon as it started. According to Hudson Valley Sports Report, he resigned as coach Thursday just three days after being approved by the school board to replace longtime coach Jim Delmar.
AD Frank Alfonso confirmed the latest development to the website and indicated a new search would commence.
Delmar lost his job as baseball coach last spring and girls basketball coach this season because he is not an employee of the Highland schools. Per the contract with the teachers union, district employees have priority on coaching assignments.
Latino previously coached boys basketball at Highland and Our Lady of Lourdes, and has been Highland's modified boys basketball coach for several years. He is president of the Highland Teachers Association.
Delmar's basketball teams have won five Section 9 championships in seven years.
