Pat Bassett, South Jeff girls basketball coach, gets OK to return to the court


South Jefferson girls basketball coach Pat Bassett will return to practice today.

South Jefferson Central School District Superintendent Jamie Moesel said in a statement to the Times on Tuesday afternoon: “The district and coach Bassett have reached a consensus in regards to the concerns, and coach Bassett returns to practice this afternoon.”

Mr. Bassett and district officials took part in a closed-door meeting Tuesday after a nearly four-hour Board of Education meeting ended without resolution Monday night.

Mr. Bassett, a two-time state champion coach, was put on administrative leave last Tuesday for reasons that still have not been revealed. Moesel said she still could not elaborate on what led to Bassett’s leave.

The Spartans’ next scheduled game is Thursday night at home against General Brown.
