Dan Nemergut will be new coach at O'Brien Tech

O'Brien Tech athletic director Dan Nemergut will take over the head coaching duties for the Condors, he confirmed Tuesday. Ken Roberts recently resigned after leading the Condors to a 3-7 record in their inaugural season last fall.

Despite little football coaching experience, Nemergut decided to accept the job. Nemergut explained how the hiring process works:

The job must be posted for seven days for O'Brien Tech employees, who will be considered first for the position. Applicants who are employees of other state vocational technical schools will be considered next before the job gets posted to the public. Just one applicant applied from another tech school.

With Nemergut accepting the position, it allows for assistant coaches Nick Aprea and Joe DeVellis to remain with the program.

"I wanted to keep the continuity in the program," Nemergut said. "The two assistants are going to stay and we will move forward.

"The assistants we have working with us are very good. There's a good atmosphere with the kids and the assistants coming back. We're hoping to add staff, and we hope to inch the program forward."

New Haven hosts Governor's Cup Combine

NEW HAVEN — Hand’s Henry Foye spent Sunday afternoon throwing passes to some of the best wide receivers in the state, including Windsor’s Aaron Berardino.

The two formed quite the quarterback-receiver combination, one that could become a reality if both are selected to play in the 14th Governor’s Cup football game on June 30.

Around 150 athletes tried out during a combine at the Floyd Little Athletic Center.

The game pits graduating seniors from this state against their counterparts from Rhode Island. Connecticut has won the past nine meetings, and leads the series 10-3.

“It’s really great because everybody you get to throw to is good,” Foye said. “Everybody’s the best in the state, so you know everyone’s going to run the right routes; everyone’s going to make the right cuts.”
