U-E names Tom Baleno new Football Coach
4/16/2013 (Updated 11:52:38 PM)ENDICOTT -- The search is over for Union-Endicott's new football coach. The team has announced that former Defensive Coordinator Tom Baleno will man the Tiger sidelines.
Baleno takes over a program rich in tradition, as just the fifth Head Coach since 1920. He replaces Shane Hurd, who is now the Assistant Head Coach and QB Coach at Cornell University. Even though he has been running the defense since 2006, Baleno is not concerned about his new, overall responsibility.
At a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Baleno said, "The X's and O's, they're going to take care of themselves. I'm very confident with my staff, I'm very confident in myself and the community, and the support from the community."
Tigers Athletic Director Josh Gannon added, "He obviously knows how we do things and not only understands the tradtion, but understands that we don't want to be complacent."
Union-Endicott has not yet named Baleno's replacement at Defensive Coordinator.
