Former Wellesley High basketball standout and Framingham assistant coach Adam Cluff was named as Tarlin's replacement.
Tarlin, who also coached seven seasons as a junior varsity assistant at Needham High, had his best season in 2008, when the Flyers made the semifinals of the Division 1 South sectionals before being ousted by Brockton. Framingham was 16-7 that year.
Cluff, a three-time Bay State league all-star while at Wellesley High, is excited to take on the task as he gets set to started on the first head coaching position of his career. He spent nine seasons as an assistant.
"I've been working toward this for some time, and I know there's a great deal of potential at Framingham," Cluff said. "Framingham has had a few tough seasons of late, but the infastructure is in place to turn things around".
Cluff's outlook on the season is promising.
"I just think any time there's a coaching change there's going to be a lot of optimism," Cluff said. "I'm going to build off that."
