Bishop Guertin coach to stay on despite losing job as Mass. police officer for sleeping on the job
NASHUA - A local football coach who was caught sleeping on the job while working as a police officer in Massachusetts will continue coaching.
According to the Telegraph of Nashua, Bishop Guertin High School officials are standing by Cardinals head football coach Jeff Moore.
Moore reportedly resigned from his job with the Lowell, Mass. police department after he was photographed sleeping in his cruiser during a portion of his regular 1 a.m.-9 a.m. shift. The photo, taken by a private citizen, was sent to the Lowell Sun newspaper, which published it.
"It was an unfortunate situation, he dealt with things professionally, both at the school and in Lowell," said athletic director Pete Paladino.
Paladino said every coach is reviewed each year and the contracts are for one season, but sources at the school say the administration plans on Moore being the head coach beyond this season.
"In my mind, a blip on the radar screen, and hopefully we'll never have another one," he said.
