Keep Daniel Hytko as Cohoes Girls’ Varsity Basketball Coach

We, the undersigned, petition the Cohoes City School District, Superintendent Robert Libby, and the Cohoes Board of Education to keep Daniel Hytko as the Girls’ Varsity Head Basketball coach for the 2014-2015 school year, and beyond.

We feel he is the best person for the job. He has been a successful coach for the Cohoes Girls’ Varsity basketball since 1998, and was the Cohoes Boys’ Varsity Basketball coach from 1987-1998. He also coached at HVCC for 15 years. He has the experience, knowledge and rapport with his players and their parents.


  • Katie Smith A group of us will meeting with Morgan at the school board meeting on July 9. We will be meeting at the Middle School at 5:45 pm. Please come to show your support for Coach Hytko. Please pass the word along

  • Roxanne Gibbs This really upsets me! Not only is he an amazing coach, he will do ANYTHING for his basketball girls. Thanks to Hytko I had an amazing time playing on the basketball team, and I wouldn't have asked for any other coach. He has so much knowledge for this sport and doesn't make anyone feel left out. He always makes sure everyone has an understanding of whats going on. If you wouldn't get it or had some troubles he would take the time to make sure you knew. He just doesn't see us as student athletes , or even just a team, he treats us like family on and off the court, we are a family. It would be the worst decision CHS has ever made to let go of not only an amazing coach, but a great person.

  • Brittany brown Katie Smith I agree with what you said. I had the privilege to play for Coach Hytko all through high school and as an 8th grader when I played on the JV level. He's got more knowledge and experience than anyone I know. He's a great guy not only as a coach but a great mentor to everyone. He is one of a kind and the board should be able to see this. He should not be replaced. The school and the teams that he ands coached over the years have gained so much he has a great repetition. It would just be wrong if he was removed and replaced as head coach.
