Vincentian hoops coach leaves for North Hills

Charles “Buzz” Gabos is leaving his post as boys basketball coach at Vincentian Academy to become head coach at North Hills.

Gabos has more than 15 years of coaching experience — 12 at the varsity level. He previously served as a varsity assistant coach at North Hills for five seasons. In addition, he was instrumental in the development of the North Hills Elementary Basketball program, which serves boys and girls in grades 2 through 6.

During his seven-year tenure at Vincentian, Gabos won four section titles and qualified for the WPIAL playoffs six times. In 2000 and 2003, his teams reached the WPIAL finals.

“As a member of the community, I have been involved in youth sports for a number of years,” said Gabos, who lives in Ross Township. “I’m looking forward to the opportunity to improve the quality of basketball in North Hills.”

Gabos is a fifth-grade teacher at Ross Elementary School.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
