Leading off today:
Fresh off the team's biggest win of the season, Kevin Ross resigned
as John S. Burke Catholic head football coach on Tuesday, The Times Herald-Record reported.
Assistant coach Aaron Hasbrouck has been named head coach for the remainder of the season.
"I want to thank Coach Ross for his years of service to our football program," AD Adam Kless said in a statement. "In two and a half years, he was able to establish new traditions and elevate the overall expectations of the program. We have in place a strong foundation, which Coach Hasbrouck and his staff will be able to build upon."
Burke is coming off a 14-6 win over previously unbeaten New Paltz.
Ross was Army's offensive coordinator during his father's years as head coach, 2004-06. Kevin was an assistant with the University at Albany in 2013. When Albany coach Bob Ford retired after the 2013 season and Ross wasn't retained on the staff, he began searching for coaching jobs at all levels.
• Fourth-year Niagara-Wheatfield football coach Brent Tylec has been away from the program due to a personnel matter, Superintendent Dan Ljiljanich confirmed to the Niagara Gazette.
Tylec was not present for Saturday's loss at Kenmore West and was still absent as of Tuesday's practice, the paper reported. Assistant coach Russ Nixon has stepped in to lead N-W in Tylec's absence.
Week 5 forfeits have begun: Fallsburg will forfeit Friday's football game to Millbrook due to a lack of available players.
Besides being homecoming week for Millbrook, its the third straight season the program has seen its schedule shortened by a forfeit.
"I feel terrible for our players," Millbrook coach Sean Keenan told Hudson Valley Sports Report. "It's a different situation this year with Fallsburg. I know their coach has tried extremely hard to build a program there, and he feels terrible about it."
