Gulf softball coach Rick Hohenthaner resigns after 12 seasons

Posted Apr 15, 2014 by Andy Villamarzo

Updated Apr 15, 2014 at 10:31 AM

One of Pasco County’s longest-tenured softball coaches will no longer be roaming the dugout.

Gulf softball coach Rick Hohenthaner has officially resigned as head coach Tuesday morning, Hohenthaner told the Tampa Tribune. His resignation comes a day after Gulf (17-5) was upset by Sunlake 2-1 in the opening round of the Class 5A-District 8 tournament at River Ridge High.

Hohenthaner took over Gulf in 2002 and immediately started to makes changes in the right direction. Gulf reached the postseason in 2005 and defeated Crystal River in a region quarterfinal matchup.

Last season, the Buccaneers won the school’s first district title in softball and reached the region semifinals before being upended by Brooksville Hernando 3-1.

Bishop McLaughlin names assistant Craig Moore as its head football coach

Posted Apr 8, 2014 by Mike Camunas

Updated Apr 8, 2014 at 05:11 PM

Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High has named assistant Craig Moore as its new football head coach, athletic director Joe Jasinski announced Tuesday afternoon.

Moore has been assistant coach for the Hurricanes in two of the past three years, and during the year between, Moore coached at Anclote. Moore also served as an assistant coach at Immokalee High.

Moore played in the NFL in 1999 with the San Diego Chargers and had an eight-year career in the Arena Football League and spent a year in the Xtreme Football League in 2001.

Jasinski says Moore will take over immediately and fill his coaching staff in the next few days.

Moore replaces Derrick Alexander, the former FSU and NFL defensive lineman that was hired in 2011 and compiled a 12-19 in three seasons, but stepped down last week to spend more time with his family.

In 2013, the Hurricanes were 2-8 record in first and only season Class 3A-District 4 and will return to the Sunshine State Athletic Conference this fall.
