Word is Cardinal Mooney has fired PJ Fecko as head coach and replaced him with Carl Pelini. If true, something must of happened for a change like this less than a week before the start of camp. Its very odd to say the least.
Wouldn’t be the first time big donors got their way at a catholic schoolThe interesting thing is Fecko still has his teaching job. If he something away from football wouldn't he lose his teaching job. Unless Jaws31 is 100% correct and the Pelinis conspired to get a job.
Now Feckos name will be linked to every coaching opening the next couple of years.
I think this is a little harsh to Carl...outside of what happened at FAU now almost a decade ago, what does this guy have going against him? He did a pretty good job getting Fitch back to respectability, and probably laid more of the groundwork for Kopp than he'd get credit for.Never thought much of Fecko as a coach (considering talent) but putting a guy with a terrible reputation like Pelini in place reinforces what I’ve heard about Mooney being a disaster as a school.
I’m not going to complain as Boardman supporter. But it is sad to see what’s become of a once pretty proud school/program.
The guy admitted to cocaine use. Why would you want him coaching 14-18 year old kids?I think this is a little harsh to Carl...outside of what happened at FAU now almost a decade ago, what does this guy have going against him?

Until kids realize the new head coach has a brother that is the defensive coordinator at the defending national champion Louisiana state. I think this will go along way, and if he brings in a different type of offense, maybe one that should exist in the 21st-century they will be immensely successful. Pj just resisted the change that the game has seen lately.Fecko was due to be gone after last season. Things hit a snag. New administration brought in. Then it gets even more interesting as Crazy Carl takes the helm. Mooney has become the clown show of the Mahoning Valley.
