After three seasons as the Green Knights’ defensive coordinator, Danny Marangi is the new head football coach at St. Joseph Regional High School in Montvale, New Jersey. Friday, the school announced Marangi as Augie Hoffmann’s replacement.
Hoffmann, who resigned earlier this month to take an assistant coach job at Rutgers, hired Marangi in 2017 after he manned the Don Bosco Prep defense from 2004 through 2016.
“Dan Marangi offers St. Joe’s an excellent vision for the future of our school and our football program,” St. Joseph president Kevin McNulty said in a press release. ” He provides continuity to our enormously successful past while simultaneously bringing widely recognized ingenuity and creativity.”
“I am thrilled to be entrusted with fostering the missions of St. Joe’s,” Marangi said in a press release. “Which is to build the Vir Fidelis, the faithful man. Everything that we do on the football field is directly related to that.”
In 2018, SJR had a rock-solid defense that won the state’s Non-Public Group 4 championship and finished No. 15 in the High School Football America 100. Last year, the Green Knights finished 7-4 and No. 85 in our national rankings. SJR finished No. 3 in the High School Football America New Jersey Top 25.
According to SJR’s news release, as a defensive coordinator, Marangi has a career record of 173-33 and most notably, he has won 10 state championships and two high school National Championships.
