Ecke says lack of administrative support led to resignation
Ecke said in an e-mail to media outlets Monday that he is stepping down.
His decision comes almost two weeks after being suspended due to an incident at a junior varsity lacrosse game in Glastonbury involving his son Tucker on May 3 in which police were called to the field.
Ecke, the head coach at Cheshire since the 1995 season, was awaiting a hearing that had yet to be scheduled by Cheshire’s Board of Education.
“It’s not a decision I wanted to make, but a decision that had to be done,” Ecke told the Register on Tuesday. “I was told by (Cheshire superintendent Greg J. Florio) that I would not enjoy the support of the administration if it went to a hearing. I kind of was boxed into a corner.”
