Chappaqua Athletic Director Steve Young to Resign

Young is leaving to take a role in New Rochelle school district.

Steve Young, the Chappaqua school district's athletic director, is resigning, District Clerk Theresa Markley confirmed.

Young, who has been in his role for about a decade, will step down on Aug. 10. He will assume an athletic administrative role in the New Rochelle school district, according to Markley.

The school board is expected to vote on his resignation at its Aug. 8 meeting, Markley said.

For the time being, Young will be replaced by a new (and old) face. Peter Kuczma, who was Young's precedessor until he left in 2002, will hold the job again on an interim basis. In June, the school board voted to bring Kuczma back to the fold, partially, by appointing him to the position of supervisor of athletics, to take over some of Young's work. However, nobody else will be filling that role, at least right away.

"That position will not be filled right now," Markley said.

The AD job has been changing, Markley explained, as it requires more involvement in the state's new teaching evaluation system.

There is no word yet on any search process for a permanent athletic director.

More recently, Young faced the suspension of long-time colleague, football coach and gym teacher Bill Tribou. The two appeared to clash, however, last fall.

Tribou is still on suspension, and his assistant, Tim Sullivan, for the coming season. District officials are not publicly saying why Tribou is out because it is a personnel matter.

Young could not be reached for comment. He announced his job change to coaches and athletic staff on Monday, according to New Castle NOW.

Peter Kuzma is a class act. He will bring stability and a sense of sportsmanship to the department. Good luck Pete

What happened that Tribou needed to be suspended?
