Bethel Park officially filled in their head football coach vacancy by hiring current Assistant Coach and Dean of Students Mr. Brian DeLallo.

In a meeting by the School Board on Tuesday, March 26, DeLallo was unanimously voted to take over for Coach Jeff  Metheny.

DeLallo was not the only candidate. There were many who were vying for the job. The search was narrowed down to about six.

“That’s what we boiled it down to,” Sloan said. “We screened a bunch of candidates before that. We wanted to give everybody an opportunity. We screened many more than that, but that’s what we boiled it down to in our serious interviews.” (Steve Rotstein, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).

Metheny retired as one of only 26 coaches in the WPIAL with 200 wins, with a career record of 205-114 and 164-104 record at Bethel. He also has claimed a WPIAL title and a PIAA runner-up in 2008. He resigned so that he can focus on watching his son, Levi, play college football at Albany.

DeLallo has coached for 13 years at Bethel Park over two terms, as well as some time with Jim Render at Upper St. Clair and Lou Cerro at Montour.

He also started out coaching the defensive side of the ball in Arizona, where he coached at Chandler Hamilton High School under John Wrenn, who is a three-time state champion. One of the players he coached there was Terrell Suggs, NFL All-Pro outside linebacker.

This past season, he coached the defensive backs for the Hawks.

“We have to keep the momentum going that Coach Metheny left us. I learned a lot from him. We have to keep moving the program forward. I am not going to let him down. We got some high goals. If we achieve these short term goals, then our goals of winning championships start taking shape. A long term goal for us is getting more people out for the team. Not just athletes, but getting managers, video people, and other slots, ” DeLallo said.

DeLallo takes over a team that is loaded with talent, with a lot of seniors coming back. The Hawks went 6-4 last season, making the playoffs. They look to improve on that and make a push for a WPIAL and PIAA title.
