Pete Cahill Steps Down at Manasquan

Posted by Scott Stump

Manasquan head coach Pete Cahill stepped down as head coach on Tuesday when he was approved as a vice principal at a Board of Education meeting earlier this week.

“It’s time for a change,” Cahill. “I’m literally giving up the best job there is, but sometimes you have to make those tough decisions. The program is in real good hands.

“I told the kids that the best part of program that (legendary coach) Vic (Kubu) set up is that nobody is bigger than the program and that includes the head coach. I’ve done it before, and I always knew I would get back into the administration end.”

Cahill was a vice principal at Manasquan for three years in the early ’00s, and he took over following Kubu’s death from pancreatic cancer in 2007. In four seasons as head coach, Cahill had a 34-11 record, including a 9-2 season this past fall in which the Warriors won the Shore Conference Class C Central title and reached the Central Jersey Group II semifinals. He led the Warriors to a CJ II title in 2008 and an appearance in the championship game in 2009.

The most likely candidates to succeed Cahill are a pair of veteran assistants who also coached under Kubu, Jay Price and Rich Read.
