Pennsylvania: Easton hires within…again

Easton footballWith 800+ all-time victories, Easton is 2nd on Pennsylvania's all-time wins list.

Easton High School, one of America’s winningest high school football programs, has hired Jeff Braido, a longtime assistant, as the school’s new head football coach. Braido, who is a 1988 graduate of Easton and a 9th grade teacher at the school, replaces Steve Shiffert, who was not asked back after 24 years at the head of the Red Rovers program.

Shiffert, who is Easton’s all-time leader in coaching wins, finished with a lifetime record of 216-89-1 with 19 postseason appearances in 24 years.

Easton has not hired a head coach from outside its own staff since 1948 when Bob Rute became Easton’s head football coach.
