Remembering Greg Toal's Move to Bergen Catholic


Reporters and columnists at The Record and NorthJersey.com are sharing a behind-the-scenes look at stories that were most popular with our readers in 2017, according to metrics on NorthJersey.com. This story is part of that series. Darren Cooper's most popular story was about Greg Toal becoming coach at Bergen Catholic.

I realized the best way to find out officially whether Greg Toal was going to coach at Bergen Catholic was to go to the top of the letterhead.

I was thinking to myself, wow, I came here expecting one big story and now have two.

But no, the video presentation and all that is not for public consumption yet (although it will be soon). Then I asked about Coach Toal's status and Brother Walsh was like, 'Oh sure, here's the press release.'

By this point it was already widely expected that Toal would join Campanile's staff. Campanile had such respect for Toal and their time together at Don Bosco Prep, and it was a way for Toal to stay connected to North Jersey non-public football, and yes, get a shot at playing against Don Bosco Prep again. …
