After Eric Kasperowicz was controversially ousted as Pine-Richland’s head coach over the summer, Campos was hired as the new head coach. Pine-Richland weathered a nightmare 0-3 start with Campos at the helm to qualify for the WPIAL Class-5A playoffs following a 7-5 season.
Despite a loss to eventual state champion Penn-Trafford in the WPIAL 5A semifinals, Pine-Richland gained a level of stability after a tumultuous offseason.
But with Campos’s resignation following a knee replacement surgery in March and “lingering health concerns” moving forward, Pine-Richland will begin the coaching search all over again.
Pine-Richland won the PIAA Class-5A championship in 2020 and won the WPIAL 6A title in 2017 and 2018 and WPIAL 5A title in 2020.
