Jack Cochran hired at Harding

The CT POST was first to report this weekend that Jack Cochran was hired to be the new football coach at Harding.

From the POST report:

Jack Cochran, both the most successful and controversial high school football coach in recent Connecticut high school history, has been hired as Harding’s football coach, citywide athletic director Neil Kavey confirmed Saturday.

“Jack Cochran will be the head coach at Harding next year,” Kavey said.

Cochran, whose last job as a head coach was at New London in 2008, takes over a foundering program that hasn’t had a winning season since 1996 and is 9-91 over the last 10 years.

“It’s like a rebirth,” Cochran said. “It’s been a long three or four years and I’m excited to getting back to doing what I love: coaching kids.”

Cochran has won eight state championships in 14 title game appearances at Bloomfield, New Britain and New London and is widely regarded as one of the best high school football coach in Connecticut. His career coaching record is 160-24-2.
