This opening should pull a big name from somewhere!  Perhaps from the Southwestern part of the state in 3A?  :10:

No way....I think TW sticks it out where he is at!

It will come up for every year for the next several (opening or not)...however each year it dies down a little.  

Congrats to coach Lorenzano....hope he can sit back and relax!

It's always surprising to see successful and revered coaches retire. Good luck to Chatard finding a replacement.

I can confirm The TW will be remaining with the Indianapolis Fire Department and not heading to Bishop Chatard.

Mr. O'Shea at Lafayette Central Catholic would be a natural fit for the job at Bishop Chatard.

Really hoping BC hires from within the program. Congrats to Coach L on a remarkable career.

Most sought after vacancy in the state, I would presume. 

Best wishes BC.

Have a feeling that this will be a hire from within, but that feeling doesn't mean anything. Know nothing about this program other than their winning history. Congrats to Coach Lorenzano on a great career!

Truly, truly going to miss seeing Coach L leading the Trojans.  I'm an Indy import but he was there during the most formative times in my kid's lives.  He IS the "Chatard" that both they and my family knows.  

His influence on the life of my children is indelible.  An important part of what they are and will become is what he helped make them

Seven State Championships in 14 years.  

That statement stands fairly alone in the history of Indiana HS football.  

It stands minimally in light of the future fathers he helped guide.

Over half of Chatard's current State leading 13 Championships came under Coach Lorenzano's leadership.  He's truly defined and left his stamp on the program.  

As incredible as that is, Coach L "brought a swagger" and "inspired everyone" to quote my oldest son....long since gone from Chatard.  That same son, today, walks with that inspiration and swagger he got from "L".  I suspect he will always walk so.

Those State Championships dwindle in light of those truly, truly tough, inspired kids who swagger in his wake. 

Lives and generations beyond will be touched by that....long after the medals and rings fade.

Coaches touch most of our lives as kids.  They give us so much more than they gain...that's why they are such special people.  They certainly touched and molded mine many years ago in HS and College....but much, much moreso in HS.  Whatever they receive, they give back tenfold.

Even so, it's a rare coach that touches the parents so deeply as well....as Coach L has done within our family...along with some other wonderful coaches at Chatard (other than Dad, perhaps the biggest male influence on my youngest son was his Freshman line coach).  

Though it's inadequate, all we can do is thank you Coach.  Our family has a special place in our hearts and thoughts for you. 

Edit - apologies for the overlong post.  I could have written a book, though, on his behalf.

Seems like the OSheas have a pretty good situation at LCC... Don't know why you would want to change.

Wishful thinking? ;)

He has proven just about everything he can down in 1A.  Step up to the plate with a larger school and possibly a larger challenge.

Well, I for one hope that OShea stays at LCC where we only have to face his team once per year and only in the regular season.

He has his Father, Brother and Son on the Coaching Staff at LCC,  Why would he leave????  Something to prove?  Not likely.

 

I can tell you  Coach O'Shea doesn't coach high school football to prove anything.

Chatard has had some pretty good success hiring from within...Lorenzano, Dilley, and Barr all won multiple state championships as in-house hires.

Any chance that Dilley would want to come back?

Also was looking at coaching history at BC and saw that Center Grove assistant coach Tom Blanck was head coach there during the 1980's. Had no idea about this.

I didn't know this either id have to ask my dad he would know for sure but I know He coached in Florida for a while before coming to be the head coach at Monrovia in the early 90s took for when Jim Kaiser went to Avon. He still teaches at Monrovia today

Anyone heard any update on this?  I heard they reached out to Dick Dullaghan to see if he had interest.
