After a successful six year run with two state titles, Augie Hoffmann is leaving St. Joseph Regional (Montvale) to become a position coach on Greg Schiano’s staff at Rutgers. Hoffman, a St. Joe’s alum, took-over SJR for the legendary Tony Karcich in 2014.
During his time at the head of the Green Knights, his teams spent a lot of time in the High School Football America national rankings. This past season, SJR finished No. 85 in the Top 100 with a 7-4 record against one of the toughest schedules in the nation.
In 2018, when St. Joe’s won the Non-Public Group 4 title, the Green Knights finished No. 15 in the nation. Hoffmann also led the team to a No. 43 ranking in 2017 and a No. 19 ranking in 2016 when he won a Non-Public Group 3 championship.
Overall, Hoffman amassed a record of 49-20. He’s the second head coach from the highly-respected North Jersey Super Football Conference’s United Red Division to head to Rutgers. Nunzio Campanile left Bergen Catholic two years ago and last season served as the Scarlet Knights’ interim head coach after Chris Ash was fired.
