Springfield BOE removes termination of head football coach from agenda

The 2017-18 school year is still months away from concluding, but it already has been a long year for Pat Gucciardo, Springfield High School’s head football coach.

The coach has experienced a contentious year that included–at the January 24 meeting–an item on the board of education proposing his termination as coach.

No action was taken, however, as the board unanimously agreed to remove the item from its agenda.

Coach Gucciardo came under fire before the start of the 2017-18 school year for violating OHSAA recruiting bylaws.

The violation was self-reported by Springfield Schools which imposed–but did not carry out–penalties that included a two-game suspension.
