One of the classiest high school football coaches that I’ve had the privilege of knowing in my 40+ years of covering the sport is retiring.
Jim Morgans, who has two Pennsylvania state championships on his resume, has stepped-down as the head coach at Parkland High School. In 33 years as a head coach, Morgans amassed a record of 262-137-1.
This past season, Morgans led Parkland to the PIAA 4A championship game where the Trojans lost to Pittsburgh Central Catholic, which finished #24 in the nation in the High School Football America Top 25.
Morgans’ state championships came while he was the head coach at Allentown Central Catholic. He also was the head coach at Bethlehem Freedom and Salisbury.
Below watch a video on Coach Morgans’ decision from Dave Lesko, the Lehigh Valley’s best sportscaster.
