New Philadelphia City Schools has announced that Mike Johnson will become the new Head Football Coach for the high school program, pending Board approval at our next Board of Education meeting. Johnson has been an assistant for the Quakers since 2009 and has served as the Offensive Coordinator most recently. Johnson is also a 2001 graduate of NPHS.
Athletic Director, Matt Dennison, states, ‘Coach Johnson is a perfect fit for our program right now. He is energetic, organized, and builds great relationships with the players. We look forward to him continuing our proud tradition and building upon it. I am confident that the program will grow and flourish under Coach Johnson’s leadership.’
‘Through a very competitive candidate pool Coach Johnson was clearly the right person to lead our football program,’ stated Superintendent Dave Brand. ‘Coach Johnson is a great coach and an even better person. We look forward to him leading our Quaker student-athletes to victory both on and off the field.’”
