Plum hired Eric Gillis as its girls basketball coach Tuesday
Gillis, a Plum graduate, replaces Bernie Pucka, who resigned after seven seasons.
Gillis has been a Plum boys basketball assistant coach under Ron Richards. He also was a Fox Chapel girls basketball assistant when the team reached the WPIAL Class AAAA finals in 2009.
“We had several quality candidates apply for the position, and Eric really impressed us,” Plum athletic director Bob Alpino said. “He has a great work ethic, and we are confident he is ready to lead our girls basketball program.”
Gillis, a three-year letterman at Plum, played at Pitt-Johnstown.
