Make sure you understand what hearsay is. Hearsay is second hand not direct knowledge. If I tell you I am gong to kill you, you have direct knowledge and can testify to that. If I tell you I am going to kill you and you tell your neighbor I said I was going to kill you, your neighbor doesn't have direct knowledge. He has hearsay. Whether or not that would be admissable in court, depends on…

Kevin Meyer to take over state power

Quincy Notre Dame announced that head basketball coach Eric Orne has stepped down. 

Orne's teams had a record of 363-77 over 14 years with three state titles and six state trophies overall.

Orne will remain as associate athletic director and head softball coach. Orne said he also is in charge of the school's facilities and transportation and will be very active in that as QND will unveil its artificial turf field in August. 

"Both professionally and personally, other avenues have opened up in my life and right now is a great opportunity to explore those and step back from girls basketball," Orne said. "We have a lot of things with the capital improvements here that I am overseeing." 

"I got to be the road manager for a rock band that was full of superstars," Orne said of the young ladies he coached. "These girls realized the assist was as important as the basket." 

Kevin Meyer will take over as girls basketball coach. He will be the 12th coach in the program's history. 

"At the end of the day, the nationwide search is right here," Athletic Director Bill Connell said this morning regarding Meyer's selection.

Meyer thanked Orne and said he had big shoes to fill. 

"Over the last four or five years...Eric has done an incredible job of preparing me to run this program," Meyer said. "The kids know what to expect. I've been blessed to be able to have input and be more of an associate head coach than an assistant head coach. It's a challenge, but it is an exciting challenge."

EDITOR'S NOTE: Quincy Journal had a camera issue during Meyer's portion of the news conference. That's why the QND logo is over him. We apologize.
