Chris Bramanti has been selected by Westford Academy as the new boys’ varsity basketball coach. He will replace retiring head basketball coach Ed Scollan who was at the helm of the Grey Ghosts for 13 seasons.
Bramanti has served as an English teacher at Westford Academy for 14 years and has been a part of the basketball program in various roles under Scollan. He also has more than 20 years experience coaching AAU and summer league teams in the region.
“I’m incredibly thrilled and excited about the opportunity to be the next basketball coach at Westford Academy,” Bramanti said in a press release. “I obviously have huge shoes to fill, but I’m ready for the challenge.”
Bramanti, a native of Burlington, resides in Chelmsford with his wife Gretchen and seven children.
