WPIAL to GCC: Suspend Boys Basketball Coach or Else

Tuesday, January 28, 2014 | 6:44 PM

The WPIAL has no authority over personnel at district schools, but they do have the power to keep a school out of their postseason tournament. On Tuesday, the WPIAL ruled that Greensburg Central Catholic High School would have to suspend boys basketball coach Greg Bisignani at least three games or else they would not be allowed to participate in the upcoming WPIAL boys basketball playoffs.

The ruling came following a hearing on Monday after Coach Bisignani was accused of making contact with a game official following the Centurions 66-63 loss to McKeesport on January 18th. Bisignani denied he made contact with the official.

The Greensburg Central Catholic boys basketball program has also been put on probation for the rest of the season.
