Stonington - Tim Payne has been offered the boys' basketball head coaching position at Stonington High School, multiple sources told The Day on Monday.
Payne, the boys' basketball coach at St. Bernard for the last eight seasons, declined comment when reached Monday night. He would replace Mike Reyes, who coached the Bears for six seasons before resigning in July to spend more time with his family.
Stonington athletic director Bryan Morrone would not confirm the hire, but in a statement released to the media on Monday night said: "A committee completed interviews and I am now gathering the proper paperwork from our possible hire. When I receive all the necessary candidate's paperwork; and then receive hiring approval from Stonington Public School Interim Superintendent, Paul Smotas, I will release the official Stonington Boys Basketball Head Coach's name."
