But for now, this little bit of news ...
Sean Benjamin's coaching career at Geibel has ended before he ever coached a game. But he still finishes with a record of 0-2.
Benjamin resigned as Geibel's coach this week, a few days before the Gators are supposed to play their first game Saturday against Vincentian. So how is that Benjamin's record is 0-2? Well, Benjamin was in his first season and Geibel forfeited its first two games because it did not have enough players.
Geibel started the preseason with only 15 players, but with injuries and a player quitting, the Gators didn't have enough players to compete. A few of the injured players have returned for the Vincentian game. Benjamin said he was resigning because he doesn't think Geibel should play this season because of the lack of players.
"I thought about it a lot," said Benjamin. "We will have three or four freshmen playing and only 11 or 12 players. I looked at it as a safety issue more than anything. It would be really hard for me to put those players out on the field knowing we might have only 11. The school administration said they want to keep going with the season and I respect what they want to do. I just don't agree with putting those players out there."
The rest of Benjamin's staff will continue coaching and former assistant head coach Bob Petrella will be the interim head coach for the rest of the season.
