The Dean of Connecticut Boys Basketball on Sunday's NHSCA Sports Hour

by Jeff Fisher
Host, NHSCA Sports Hour

I just re-booked Vito Montelli, the 2011 National High School Coaches Association's Boys' Basketball Coach of the Year, on this Sunday's show.

Coach Montelli made a brief appearance on the June 26th show, but his interview had to be cut short due to time constraints, so I'm bringing him back this week to talk about his incredible career that puts him at the top of Connecticut's wins list.

Coach Montelli will be celebrating his 50th season on bench for the St. Joseph High School in Trumbull, Connecticut.  Montelli is the only coach that the school has ever had.

Last season, Montelli led the Cadets to their 10th state championship with a 79-53 win over Fairfield Prep in the Class LL title game.  The LL championship gave St. Joseph the distinction of being the only Connecticut school to win state championships in all four classifications.

Montelli's record is 853-329.  He'staken his teams to 16 state championship games.

Coach Montelli will be on Sunday's NHSCA Sports Hour around 6:40 PM EST.
