Naugatuck's Plasky resigns (updated)

Naugatuck coach Rob Plasky has resigned Friday.
Below is an excerpt from the Waterbury Rep-Am. 

Rob Plasky, head football coach at Naugatuck High School, has submitted a letter of resignation in the face of an investigation into possible violations of Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference violations, according to Principal Jan Saam.

This would have been Plasky's twelfth season coaching the Greyhounds.

Saam declined to disclose which conference rules might have been violated, citing the ongoing investigation, which is being handled by borough Attorney Ned Fitzpatrick.

This story broke Thursday. Below is the story that ran in the Naugatuck Patch.

Naugatuck High School football coach Rob Plasky is on paid leave as borough officials investigate whether he violated CIAC rules by giving money to the mother of standout players who wanted to transfer to Naugy.

Plasky, a 42-year-old Naugy alum who has been head coach at NHS since 2001, is alleged to have given $2,000 to a mother who complained of trouble paying bills. Sources identified the woman as Meme Martin, the mother of quarterback Javon Martin and legal guardian of David Coggins, a wide receiver who has verbally committed to Div. 1 football power Boston College. Both players wanted to transfer to Naugy for their senior years from Sacred Heart in Waterbury, where they excelled on the gridiron for three years.

While it is unclear what the money went toward, the Republican-American of Waterbury posted a blog on Tuesday stating the academic transcripts of Martin and Coggins are being withheld by Sacred Heart because part of the tuition for both had not been paid.

Reached by phone Thursday evening, Plasky said he could not discuss the issue.
