Unioto has stayed close to home in finding their new head football coach. Monday night, the Union Scioto Board of Education hired Matt Hoops as the school's new head football coach.
Hoops told iHeart Media Sports that he will continue as the boys basketball coach, but give up duties as middle school athletic director.
While being mostly known for coaching the boys varsity basketball team to 200 career wins, Matt Hoops also coached middle school football at Unioto for about a decade. Hoops says as both football and basketball coach, he hopes to see more athletes doing both sports.
Jeff Metzler recently retired as the Shermans head football coach, taking them to their only three post-season playoff appearances in school history.
