Referring to his four years at Haverhill, Melillo said: “There are over 90 kids playing in the youth program and we have travel teams — we didn’t have that when I took over. When I interviewed for the job with (former AD) Garin Veris, he asked me to stay three years and build the program. That’s what I tried to do.”
Melillo said that his daughter Kara Melillo is interested in replacing him at Haverhill. She was a Haverhill assistant last year and also helped her father when he coached at Presentation of Mary.
