Scott Vayansky has stepped down as Westland High School boys basketball coach and Chas McCutcheon said he will officially step down as wrestling coach early next week.

Vayansky coached the Cougars for three seasons and served as an assistant under Seth Martin in the 2013-14 season.

Under Vayansky, the Cougars went 9-60 overall and 3-35 in the OCC-Central Division.

“It was a tough decision,” he said. “We definitely didn’t win as much as we wanted to, that’s the bottom line. You have to get wins, that’s what you’re judged by, and we didn’t get enough wins. We worked hard.”

Vayansky said he plans to join the Pickerington North boys basketball staff as an assistant and also spend more time watching his daughter, Megan, play basketball and volleyball for North.

McCutcheon was the wrestling coach for three seasons after serving as an assistant the previous four under Bret Busby.

The Cougars went 1-18 under McCutcheon in OCC-Central matches.

Athletics director Mike George said McCutcheon will step down to pursue an administrative position, but could remain with the program in some capacity.
