St. Edward High School has announced that Tom Lombardo has been named the school's next head football coach.
Lombardo makes his way back to St. Edward after spending the last eight successful years at Medina's Highland High School. He was a member of the St. Edward faculty and football staff from 2003-2007.
"I am so excited to return to St. Edward High School, " said Lomardo. "St. Edward football has evolved into one of the nation's top programs, and I am looking forward to building on that incredible tradition and leading our hard-working young men to continued success."
As Highland's head coach, Lombardo compiled a record of 61-29, the most of any coach in Highland's history. He led Highland to the Division II State Semifinals in 2013 and was named the Division II AP Coach of the Year.
St. Edward President Jim Kubacki added, "We are very fortunate to have found such a great fit in Coach Lombardo. his understanding of our mission and community combined with the experience he has had building and leading successful programs ensures that our young men will continue to grow in character and achieve at a high level."
Lomardo also won the Division III State Championship as the head coach at Lake Catholic High School.
