Cowan emerged as the candidate “after an extensive review process” that included parents, teachers, coaches, students, administrators and board members, Benante said in a statement.

Cowan has been a teacher and administrator for the Hyde Park Central School District for the 17 years. If approved by the board, he will succeed Chris Salumn, who left in August to become the athletic director for the Carmel district.
