Head coach Vince DeGrado sat back in his office chair and smiled Wednesday afternoon.
The veteran coach hadnt done much smiling over the past year and this one was particularly carefree and relieved.
For the first time in over a year, DeGrado was fully reinstated as head coach of the Allen Community College cross country and track and field programs after serving a suspension stemming from an altercation at last years NJCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships where DeGrado pushed an opposing assistant coach to the ground after hearing him mock one of his athletes.
