Gordon ousted at Penn Hills Penn Hills has decided it does not want Neil Gordon back as coach after 22 seasons. Gordon, who won 156 games and guided the Indians to the WPIAL title game only two seasons ago, said he was 'blindsided' by his removal.Perhaps he can do color commentary on the high school sports network like Bill Cowher's gig.
Is Mr. Gordon still the Athletic Director? Is that direction still on the map?
Update from the Trib article: Gordon retired as Penn Hills' athletic director following the 2006-07 school year and was working on a supplemental contract this past fall. Such contracts come up for review annually and are filled at the discretion of the school board, according to Teresita Kolenchak, public relations coordinator for the Penn Hills School District.
That does NOT wash with me. No vote. That's not a decision I can live with.
"A decision was made," Kolenchak said. "It wasn't a vote. No vote was taken."
Coaching in the region is important. And, the coaching relationships with schools here stink.
Because this is 'typical' does not make it 'right.' It is wrong.
