Cochran Fired

Controversial New London football coach Jack Cochran has been fired. Superintendent of Schools Christopher Clouet cited “questionable judgments” by Cochran during his time as a coach at the high school, according to the New London Day. Cochran was hired at his alma mater in 2005.

Cochran was let go from his position as head baseball coach on March 5 after holding an illegal practice, which was a factor in Clouet's decision to fire Cochran from coaching football.

Cochran led the Whalers to the Class SS football title this past December. Cochran has won eight state titles in his career. He will remain as a health teacher at the school.

According to The Day, Cochran will fight the decision, and a hearing in front of the Board of Education is likely to discuss the matter.
