'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

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.
