HERMITAGE – A divided Hermitage School Board voted 6-3 on Monday to hire Chris Mele as its high school boys head basketball coach. Mele has been the girls basketball coach at Kennedy Catholic High School for four years.

After the meeting, some board members continued debating the choice, with one who voted against saying Mele had no experience as a head coach of a boys team and accusing parents and others of conspiring to get him the post.
