Michael Gulino, who be­came the in­terim ath­letic di­rec­tor at Sleepy Hol­low High School on July 1, is think­ing big while ad­mit­ting he has rel­a­tively lit­tle time to re­vive some of the school’s sag­ging sports pro­grams.

Gulino spoke of his de­sire to have “a great ath­letic pro­gram across the board for all kids in all sports.” The cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing his ap­point­ment, though, will make it dif­fi­cult for that to be­come a re­al­ity any time soon.

“That’s my goal,” he said. “Can I do it in one year? I don’t know if I can do it in one year, but we’re def­i­nitely go­ing to work at putting the pieces in place to have a great sys­tem mov­ing for­ward and start to work at build­ing it to where it should be, at the top of Sec­tion 1 ath­let­ics.”

Gulino, 64, em­pha­sized that long-term an­swers will have to come from some­one else. He re­tired in June 2015 and noted that his ap­point­ment is for one year. He suc­ceeds Denise Kier­nan, who re­signed af­ter an undis­tin­guished two-year stint that left cer­tain pro­grams, such as foot­ball, with a long climb back merely to re­gain re­spectabil­ity. Kier­nan re­signed amid wide­spread dis­sat­is­fac­tion with her per­for­mance and that of nu­mer­ous teams.

Christo­pher Bor­sari, su­per­in­ten­dent of schools, ac­knowl­edged the need to do bet­ter when he said in a press re­lease an­nounc­ing the hir­ing of Gulino that the in­terim ath­letic di­rec­tor “will be tasked with re­view­ing our ath­letic pro­gram through an ath­letic study process fo­cused upon im­prov­ing the ath­letic ex­pe­ri­ence of stu­dents.”

Gulino spent most of his ca­reer in the Byram Hills Cen­tral School Dis­trict in Ar­monk. He was a mid­dle school health teacher there for 20 years and the ath­letic di­rec­tor at the high school for an­other 14 years. He grad­u­ated from Man­hat­tan Col­lege and holds Mas­ter’s de­grees from Co­lum­bia Uni­ver­sity Teach­ers Col­lege and Lehman Col­lege.
