Long time New Britain High boys basketball coach Stan Glowiak has resigned.
That’s a big loss for the Golden Hurricanes. His teams were always competitive and usually won. His career record in 21 seasons was 349-139. “Basketball is a year round position and I wanted to step back and see what is important for me,” Glowiak said.
No one can fault him for that.
Two things he will do is watch his son Brian, as an assistant coach at the University of Hartford; and his younger son Steven, a guard who’s red-shirting at Sacred Heart. Glowiak’s teams were always in the post season. His 2001-02 team lost the Class LL championship to Weaver. He had only two losing seasons.
The Golden Hurricanes were 20-6 last season, losing in the Class LL quarterfinal round to eventual champion Bridgeport Central.
“I’ll miss the players, especially when they come back and talk about what they’re doing with their lives,” said Glowiak, a guidance counselor at New Britain. “I’ll miss the relationships with athletic director Len Corto and principal Mike Foran, great guys, great friends. And I’ll miss running your own program.”Glowiak hasn’t ruled out returning to coaching. But at this stage, “It’s time for me to see what’s out there and enjoy some things more, like seeing my sons in the game,” he said.
