Ridgewood names Fulmer football coach

Former Gulf coach Jay Fulmer has been named head coach at Ridgewood, athletic director Tom Wellington told The Pasco Tribune.
Fulmer replaces Kent Reed, who resigned after going 5-15 in two seasons.
“He obviously has a lot of experience,” Wellington said. “We’ve heard from a lot of people about him and he’s a very energetic, knowledgeable coach. He knows a lot about the game and were looking for big things to come.”
Fulmer was forced to resign prior to the 2010 season after recruiting violations were investigated. Superintendent Heather Fiorentino indefinitely suspended Fulmer but he was reinstated last month.
In five years at Gulf, Fulmer went 31-22 and took the Buccaneers to the playoffs twice (2006, 2008), the only times Gulf has ever advanced. Fulmer, a native of Kentucky, coached at Louisville Seneca and Louisville Moore, where he went 45-61 and took four teams to the state playoffs. At Moore, he took a team that had gone 5-55 and made the playoffs in the second year.
Fulmer won’t have much time to get ready as spring practice begins May 1.
