Reinstate Joe Biddy as Suffern Cross Country Coach, the Coach with Most Wins in NY History

This petition had 1,144 supporters

As taxpayers, parents, and friends we are concerned about the decision to remove Joe Biddy from his cross country coaching position. He has been Suffern High School’s boys cross country coach for the past 49 seasons and is the coach with the most victories in New York State history with 762 wins (555 duals and 107 invitationals).

We believe that, first and foremost, Joe Biddy has the best interests of the students at heart. He is known to be a strict task master and a supporter of each individual student. He helps them set personal goals so that they will reach their highest potential.

To remove Joe would not only be taking an invaluable piece out of the athletic program, but would also be taking away from the Suffern School District. Most of all it would take away the opportunity for the students to perform the best they can and achieve their dreams.

Mr. Guccione, we would appreciate it if you would reconsider your position and reinstate Joe Biddy.

Please call or text Anthony at 845-558-6451 for more information.


The next Suffern Central school board meeting is Tuesday, February 6th at 7:30pm. We will be there at 5:30pm to hold up our signs of support for Coach Biddy. Please make your sign and meet us at 45 Mountain Avenue, Hillburn, NY 10931 that night to support Coach Biddy.

If you are a current or former member of the Suffern community we ask you to go one step further. Please send an email to the below listed school administrators telling of your history with Coach Biddy, and why you feel he should be reinstated as Suffern High School Cross Country coach. Thank you so much!
