The Connecticut Post
got to the bottom of the boiling signs of discontent in the Masuk football program Thursday night.
Brennan was hired in the spring to replace longtime coach John Murphy, who resigned in December after 15 years and three state championships.
Throughout the first weeks of fall camp, however, multiple sources in and around the program described large pockets of unrest, including a walkout by players and one assistant coach's resignation, to the New Haven Register
on Thursday afternoon.
Team parents hoped to address the situation at a Thursday meeting, which DeGennaro described to the Post as a routine annual fall sports meeting with parents.
Though details were scarce and parents declined to comment to Connecticut Post after the meeting broke after 8 p.m., a source told the Register Thursday night that Masuk's administration had reinforced its commitment to Brennan.
Principal Joseph Kobza told parents there is plan to help Brennan succeed and that he would correct many of the complaints pervading the program, the source said.
DeGennaro echoed similar sentiments to the Post.
"He has a full vote of confidence as our head football coach," DeGennaro told reporter Michael Fornabaio.
Neither Kobza, DeGennaro or Brennan have responded to calls seeking comment Thursday.
