Bogle steps down, Rudd now Glen Burnie basketball coach


September 08, 1996|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,SUN STAFF

Here we go with the first sports smorgasbrowse of the fall season. We've got a little catching up to do on county personnel moves.

If you have any notes I can you use, please, give me a call on my 24-Hour Sportsline at (410) 647-2499. . . .

Longtime assistant and former Glen Burnie basketball player, Mike Rudd was named to succeed his former coach, Terry

Bogle, as Gophers' coach. Bogle, Glen Burnie athletic director, retired after 28 seasons as head coach.

Rudd graduated from Glen Burnie in 1980 and became Bogle's assistant in 1988. He has been a substitute teacher at the school.

Bogle will also retire as athletic director after this school year. . . .

Gerald Moore's job as Arundel's head boys' basketball coach has been opened up for applications. Moore's contract was not renewed, but he is re-applying for his position in hopes of returning.

Moore has been successful at the Gambrills school -- 89-72 (.553) in seven seasons -- so it is surprising his contract was not automatically renewed.

"I sure hope I get the job back," said Moore. "I've built a program there and it would be a huge disappointment not to return."

Phil Popielski, the girls' basketball coach at Meade the last two seasons, is among the applicants for the Arundel job. Calvin Vain, who resigned as girls coach at Northeast two years ago, is another, along with former Navy player and Crofton recreation coach Hank Kuzma.

New Arundel principal Will Myers hopes to have the situation resolved by at least October. Retired Arundel principal Midgie Sledge had the option of renewing or not renewing Moore's contract at the end of last season. . . .

V. J. Keith, a Broadneck graduate who was an assistant at his alma mater in both boys soccer and boys basketball for the last few years, not only is Southern's head boys soccer coach, but will also serve as assistant basketball coach to Tom Albright.

Albright, the only county coach with 450 wins (453-260, .635) will be back for his 31st season with the Dawgs, but retirement is not that far off. Keith, who landed a full-time math teaching position at the school, likely will be groomed to succeed the Harwood legend. . . .

New football assistants: Arundel -- John Kaleo, former standout QB at South River and Bowie high schools, Montgomery-Rockville C.C. and Maryland, QB and receivers coach and Pete Glamp, former High Point and DuVal coach, defensive coordinator replacing Jeff Carr; Broadneck -- Chuck Eaton, ex-Bruin player, volunteer assistant; North County -- Jeff Tonini, ex-Bowie State assistant from Butler, Pa., DE and receivers coach; Chesapeake -- Jim Simms, Cougars' head baseball coach and former grid assistant, JV coach; and Jim Bookhamer, veteran Pasadena Chargers rec coach, assistant JV.
