    Personally I hope NewCath brings in someone from the outside to change things up a bit and get moving forward again. Sometimes an in-house hire works but in this situation I think a new name and face is needed. "Drain the swamp" but keep Lawnboy as our update guy LOL

    On a personal note I love Coach Wags he was my WR coach many moons ago. I feel the program as a whole has become a little stale and the house needs cleaned out

    COACH DAN WAGNER STEPS DOWN AS COACH OF FOOTBALL PROGRAM — NCC

    COACH DAN WAGNER STEPS DOWN AS COACH OF

    NEWPORT CENTRAL CATHOLIC

    FOOTBALL PROGRAM



    NCC Coach Dan Wagner announced his decision to step down as head coach of the football program.

    Wagner, a 1978 graduate of Newport Catholic began his coaching career at Newport Catholic in 1980 and was the Defensive Coordinator for the Thoroughbreds prior to becoming Head Coach in 2013.

    NCC Principal Ron Dawn was quoted as saying, “Dan has been a long time coach for many years and we appreciate and thank him for his commitment to NCC and dedication to our student athletes. As he pursues other opportunities we know his love for and service to the NewCath community will continue.”

    After meeting with his current players on Wednesday afternoon and announcing his resignation, Coach Wagner said, "I value my many years of coaching at NCC and having had the privilege to work with so many fine young men. My heart will always be here yet it is time to step aside and pursue other interests. I believe the great tradition that is Newport Central Catholic football will continue for years to come.”

    He added, “There certainly is a lot of talent among the players, and I wish them all the best now and with their future.”

    The process of hiring a new football coach is underway.

    Coach Brown is an excellent coach and an even better person. It would be great to see him return to NCC but in a couple conversations I've had with him he seems pretty happy coaching with his situation at CCH. Honestly I think Coach Brown would be pursued by much bigger jobs than NCC. Good Luck to NCC and whomever they hire.
