Phil Treglia: commute was too much. Contributed photo
School officials told parents that the Eastchester, New York resident, who works in New Rochelle as a guidance counselor at Iona Prep, found the commute too much.
Treglia, who led the team to a 7-3 record last fall, told the Ruden Report: “I love the league, I love the school, I love the kids and the community. I felt very supported. At this time I have to look for opportunities closer to where I work.”
Treglia had the tough job of replacing Marce Petroccio, who led the team for 25 seasons but resigned to return to his alma mater, Trumbull.
