Report: Eric Kasperowicz to Become Next Mars Head Coach



Eric Kasperowicz

Eric Kasperowicz is headed back to the WPIAL, and he’ll be at Mars, just down the road from where he spent eight seasons at Pine-Richland.

According to a report from the Post Gazette’s Mike White, the Mars school board will vote Tuesday night to confirm Kasperowicz as Mars’ newest head football coach. After a year away from high school football, following a contentious exit from Pine-Richland, it sounds like he’s heading back into the game.

Over the last season, Kasperowicz has spent time as a volunteer assistant at Pitt, helping as Pitt won its first ACC championship in December. Kasperowicz led Pine-Richland to four WPIAL titles and two PIAA titles in his eight seasons at the helm of Rams’ football. With an 85-18 record during that span, P-R was a pillar of WPIAL football and one of the strongest teams in the state.

Mars struggled through a tough 1-9 schedule in 2021, the final season of long-time head coach and athletic director Scott Heinauer’s 30 seasons at the helm of Planets’ football, but with a history of success in WPIAL football, Kasperowicz will be tasked with getting Mars back on the map in Class-4A football.

With a WPIAL Class-4A schedule, playing Section 2 with Armstrong, Hampton, Highlands, Indiana, Kiski Area and North Catholic, Kasprowicz’s task, if he’s approved by the school board, to bring Mars back to the WPIAL playoffs will begin immediately.

He’s either guilty of charges and should never be allowed to coach again or he should still be at Pine-Richland. Congrats Eric!
