Mike Zmijanac wasn’t out of work very long.
A month after resigning from Ringgold, Zmijanac was hired as the new football coach at Seton LaSalle replacing former coach Rob Carter.
“I am enthused to join a school with such a rich history in athletics and academic excellence,” said Zmijanac. “Looking forward to building a successful program in my own community at Seton LaSalle.”
Zmijanac is a long-time resident of the Mt. Lebanon community.
After being let go by Aliquippa last year, Zmijanac accepted the head coaching position at Ringgold but resigned after just one season. The Rams went 0-10 and were outscored this season by the score of 511-26.
Last season, Seton LaSalle finished 5-6 and qualified for the Class 2A playoffs.
Former Steelers general manager and current Philadelphia Eagles senior director of player personnel Tom Donahoe, who was a member of Seton LaSalle’s interview committee said in a statement- “We were fortunate to interview some great candidates for the head coach position. Coach Mike Zmijanac was most impressive with his resume of winning football, creating leaders and good citizens, and bring great energy and commitment to the job. Our students, fans and supporters should be excited about where our program is going.”
Zmijanac has a career coaching record of 237-46 with six WPIAL titles and the 13th-winningest coach in WPIAL history.
