Maine East announced the hiring of Jeff Bishop as boys soccer coach on Wednesday. Bishop was most recently an assistant coach with the Blue Demons for the past five years, and is currently in his second season as the Maine West girls head coach.
Bishop replaces Vic DiPrizio, who is retiring from his administrative position at the school at the end of this school year. DiPrizio coached Maine East for the past 14 seasons, posting a 143-138-37 record and leading the team to two regional titles in 2008 and 2011.
“We thank Vic for all he has done for Maine East Boys’ soccer,” athletic director Steve Schanz said in a release. ”His record certainly speaks for itself and he will be remembered as one of the most successful head coaches here at East. Looking ahead, I am excited to see what Jeff Bishop can do here. It is hard not to be excited talking to Jeff – his enthusiasm coupled with his demand for excellence will no doubt have a tremendous influence on the program.”
