Norwalk has named assistant coach and offensive coordinator Sean Ireland as its next head football coach.
Ireland is a 1996 graduate of Norwalk and currently a physical education teacher at the school. He takes over for Pete Tucci who resigned in November after 13 seasons a 53-72 record.
“Excited is not the word. Let’s start the season tomorrow,” Ireland said. “We open up with Danbury–let’s play them this Friday night. Let’s get going here. I just can’t wait to get these kids together and just get the ball rolling.”
Here’s the full story from the Norwalk Citizen, which covered the event this afternoon.
