The NBBA Board will decide on its next president in the coming months. L'Italien said the next director will "have big shoes to fill."
"One of the things coaches like to do is leave a place better than when we first got there," L'Italien said. "There's no question Steve is leaving the league in a much better position than when he took over. His vision has made the Newburyport basketball experience special, from the developmental league all the way through high school."
