Officials said Saturday that the head coach of the New Canaan High School varsity baseball team has stepped down after seven years in the role. Mitch Hoffman will continue to be involved in the Rams’ program as an assistant coach, according to NCHS Athletic Director Jay Egan. “Mitch’s decision to step down is based on increasing demands on his time from his business and young family,” Egan said in a letter to baseball families. Geoff Lambert, a 28-year veteran of the New Canaan Police Department who since last fall has served as the NCHS school resource officer, will step into the role, Egan said. “Geoff is an excellent baseball technician and has broad coaching experience both at the high school and travel team level,” Egan said in his letter.
