POTSDAM - Following a unanimous vote, Anthony “Tony” Vaccaro has been named the next head coach of the Potsdam boys’ varsity basketball program.
The vote was 8-0, with one member, Frederick C. Stone Jr. not present.
The appointment had garnered attention at previous meetings with several members of the public, including players from the team, lobbying for former SUNY Potsdam coach and high school varsity assistant coach Bill Mitchell to be appointed to position.
At that time district officials said there were four candidates for the position - two internal and two external.
Mr. Vaccaro is a middle school math teacher in the district and will be taking over for Brooks Bigwarfe, who resigned from the position following the 2013-2014 season.
