It appears as though the Pine-Richland school district has come up with a replacement for former football coach Eric Kasperowicz.
Multiple reports have circulated that Seneca Valley quarterbacks coach Steve Campos is likely to be hired as the next football coach for the Pine-Richland Rams. The PR School Board has scheduled a meeting for Wednesday night, at which time they’re expected to make the hiring official.
Although he only has one year experience as a high school head coach (Ringgold in 2006), Campos has a long resume with many coaching stops that include head coach at Bethany College (1993-2001) and assistant stints at IUP, Geneva, Marietta, Washington & Jefferson, Robert Morris, California (PA), Memphis State and Texas El Paso.
This open coaching position has been in the news since April when the school board made the controversial decision to part ways with the highly successful and popular Kasperowicz, who had a career record of 85-18, four WPIAL Titles and two PIAA Titles.
The Pine-Richland school board made the decision to open the head coaching position following allegations of hazing and intimidation within the football program. Kasperowicz has strongly denied these allegations and has filed a lawsuit for damage this has done to his personal reputation.
