Lasinski named Bennett head football coach

SALISBURY, Md. – Greg Lasinski has resigned as head coach with Washington High School, and has accepted the Bennett football head coach position.

Lasinski discussed the timeline of events leading up to the hiring, saying it all happened quickly.

“One of the reasons I did this was because I’m finishing up an administrators certificate, and I knew I was planning on applying for leadership positions in Somerset County and other counties as well,” Lasinski said in a interview with 47 ABC Wednesday night. “I didn’t want to leave the program in a situation where I got hired in May or June by another county and then they had no head coach.”

After seven years as head coach of Washington football, plus two years as an assistant coach, Lasinski says he was surprised to hear that the Clippers head coaching position had opened up following the resignation by Dustin Mills.

After teaching for 13 years with Somerset County, Lasinski was offered a position with Wicomico Schools, as well as the Bennett football head coaching position.

The job has a bit of a special meaning for the Salisbury University alum, whose son plays for the Fruitland Falcons and will be attending Bennett in a few years.

He describes himself as a spread offense guy who isn’t afraid to throw the football, but until he meets with his players and can understand their strengths and weaknesses he won’t be able to determine what style of offense and defense he will be implementing.

Bennett is scheduled to open up their season against Stephen Decatur High School on Saturday, September 3, at noon.
