YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Howland Tigers have found their next head football coach. Steve Boyle was approved for the position at a school board meeting Monday night.

Howland released the following statement on their new hire, “We are excited to have Steve Boyle as our new head football coach at Howland High School. During our search, it was clear Coach Boyle was the right fit for the job. Besides his familiarity with the program and community, he has great passion for the game and a strong work ethic. Our goal was to get someone who could not only successfully lead the football program, but understand the importance of building relationships with our student-athletes, parents, lower level football programs, other athletic programs, faculty, and most importantly the community. We have great confidence in Coach Boyle’s commitment to academic excellence, competitive athletic achievement, and consistent integrity in the operation of all phases of our football program.”

Steve Boyle will replace Dominic Menendez who stepped down after 20 years in the Tigers’ program, spending the last five seasons as head coach.
