Kegler Steps Down as Bedford Coach

3/18/10
The rumors about head boys basketball coach Joe Kegler leaving Bedford are true.

"My wife and I are going to start a family in the next few years and we have always had a strong desire to live in a foreign country" Kegler explained in an e-mail he sent to me today. "Therefore, last summer we began looking into moving to Portugal. As a result I began applying for teaching positions at international schools and I was offered a position several weeks ago" he went on. "My wife and I decided that it was either now or never, so we are going for it."

It is Coach Kegler's hope, and mine, that this will end any rumors about his status.

I will add that he will sorely be missed as Bedford's boys basketball coach. This year Bedford was only in its second year as a varsity program. They only won 4 games last year. Plus they had their top 2 players (Connor Green and Jared Fahmy) transfer over the summer. Despite all of that, Kegler led the Bulldogs to an 12-8 record, including a win in the tournament on the road against a good Lebanon team.

Congratulations and good luck to Coach Kegler with his future endeavors.

  2. If Bedford is losing Kegler, along with Marinelli and Webber, (and their other seniors), what do you think their chances are of having a good season next year? Hope they enjoyed their success this year as the losses make it seem like they could have a tough time next season.

  4. Good luck in Portugal, Joe. Hope you like paella? Bedford will still be good, especially inside with Mahar and Fahmy, but Milford will run the table 18-0. Everyone else will be playing for a distant 2nd place.

  5. Jared Fahmy is back at Bedford High. Whether he will play their next year is still up in the air. He might, he might also go to a different prep school besides Brewster. If he does play for Bedford, he will combine with Joey Maher for a very tough inside 1-2 combo. So you have Jared Fahmy 6'5", Maher at 6'4". Then you have 6'5" Trevor Fahmy (currently a sophomore), 6'5" Will McInerny (currently a freshman) and the younger Larrivee kid who I hear is 6'6" and one of the top 3 8th graders in the state.

    That's some crazy size, especially if the younger Fahmy and Larrivee brothers and McInerny develop. Not to mention the Bulldogs will return O'Brien and Glassman at guard and Nate Larrivee on the wing.

  6. Jeremy, as a reporter, have you investigated why Jared Fahmy left Brewster Academy, in the middle of the school year? There must be a story behind that.

  7. I hear it is because he was homesick.

  8. great job Joe - you will be missed. You managed to bring the team to the final 8 even after the loss of Green. Good luck in your travels and hopefully we will see you back in the area.
