Paramus Catholic names new head coach

Paramus Catholic football

Paramus Catholic has named Dan Sabella as its new head football coach.

Sabella spent nine years across town at Paramus High where he turned the Spartans into a North Jersey Section 1 Group 4 contender.  Sabella led Paramus to a 63-36 record with back-to-back runner-up finishes in the section in 2013 and 2014.

School officials are hoping that Sabella brings stability to the head coach position after a 3-6 season that saw John Westervelt take over as head coach after Blake Costanzo announced he was leaving after only a few months on the job.  In January, Costanzo, a former NFL player, was named the head coach after Chris Partridge stepped down to take a recruiting position at the University of Michigan.

Paramus Catholic missed the playoffs for the first time since 2009.
