Nassau Community College has named Babylon High School graduate Joe Osovet interim football coach, spokesman Chuck Cutolo said. Osovet, the team's offensive coordinator, replaced Curtis Gilliam, who Cutolo said resigned for personal reasons.

Osovet, 41, was an All-Long Island defensive back in high school who attended Nassau for two years before transferring to Northeastern. No. 17 Nassau is 7-1 and in contention to win the Northeast Football Conference.
