Immaculata will have its third head football coach in program history when it begins its 50th varsity season in 2015. The school is hoping to know the name of that coach by Jan. 31.
The school released a statement early Friday morning, saying that a search committee will be put together by athletic director Tom Gambino with the objective of hiring a new coach by Jan. 31. Assistant coaches Joe Servedio and Tom Falato and Gambino are handling any football responsibilities until a new coach is hired, according to the release.
The school wouldn’t make any other comment outside of what was on the release.
The vacancy came when John Hack resigned Thursday after two years as head coach after replacing longtime coach Pierce Frauenheim before the 2013 season. Immaculata went 9-11 in those two years. The Spartans went 3-8 this past season, suffering their first losing season since 1977.
Hack, a 2000 Immaculata High graduate, will continue in his job as Director of Advancement and Alumni Relations.
Hack said he resigned to spend more time with his family.
“I have known John Hack for about 10 years, and I have always been impressed by his deep love of his family, his God, his church and Immaculata High School,” said Monsignor Seamus F. Brennan. “He has made an enormous contribution to the football program and leaves a solid team of talented players poised to achieve great success in the years to come.”
