Coach reinstated. Jason Bresnen will be allowed to rejoin Morrisville's coaching staff after serving a two-game suspension, Morrisville School District officials decided last week.
On Sept. 10, in Morrisville's 29-6 loss to Bicentennial Athletic League rival New Hope-Solebury, Bresnen, the Bulldogs' defensive coordinator, was accused by New Hope-Solebury parents of placing a $100 bounty on a Lions player.
Four days later, Bresnen offered his resignation, citing personal reasons. The Morrisville School District said in a statement that "this matter has been resolved in the best interests of all parties."
Since then, Bresnen supporters had asked board members to reconsider accepting his resignation and appointing a new assistant.
Bresnen, 34, was a quarterback and linebacker for the Bulldogs in the early 1990s. He did not return a call seeking comment.
Quotable. St. Joseph's Prep coach Gabe Infante, on the speed of Prep wideouts Jawan McAllister and Jim Hurley, and halfback John Reid:
"It's like being at Belmont Park and watching three thoroughbred sprinters."
