Hurley: ACBOE to Address Gene Allen Firing on Friday
The Atlantic City Board of Education will hold a special meeting this Friday, November 30, 2018 at 5 or 6PM to address their self-inflicted issue of the boys basketball head coaching position.
Long-time and three-time Group 4 State Championship Head Coach Gene Allen was shown undeserved disrespect last week when the Atlantic City Board of Education took the completely unexpected action and voted 8-1 to not rehire Allen.
Only Board Member John Devlin voted against this measure.
A new coaches manual will be implemented by Superintendent Barry Caldwell. It’s something that should have been put in place long ago.
My impeccable sources have confirmed that it’s the board’s intentions to re-hire Gene Allen to his position as head boys basketball coach at this meeting.
The public will also be heard from at this special meeting.
Should the Board take this appropriate corrective action to reverse the previous poor decision, it will reflect well regarding their willingness to address a poor and unjust decision.
