Rosati leaves West Geauga for Perry

Unread postby D1ball » Wed May 09, 2007 10:37 am

Matt Rosati is leaving West Geauga to be the new head coach at Perry. This is very good news for the Pirates and a very hard loss for the Wolverines of West Geauga. The deal was reportedly good enough to spark the move for a man that wanted to retire from West G, but that's the way high school football has been going lately. A fact of life, but not always the best thing for the kids that play the game.
Finishing 8-2 last season was big for Perry and don't look for them to slide much. Coach Rosati knows how to win, so look for the Pirates to be a force again in the CVC. Hope that schedule strength can get them some quality wins and push them into the playoffs.

The question that remains now is who will fill the head coaches' spot at West Geauga?

If I am not mistaken, TJ Rockwell is the AD at Perry.

Why is this significant? Well, Rockwell was on Rosati's coaching staff back in 1997 to 2000 or so. GOod friends. Looks like old ties helped here.

Who is Rosati replacing at Perry? Bob Ritley was a legend at Perry until he retired in the late 90s due to health issues.....is the same guy that took over for Ritley the guy Rosati is replacing?

Rosati is repleacing Mike Elder. I'm not sure if he was Ritley's successor or not. Yes, old friendships must have played into this one, but it's a very good move for Perry. Most at West G understand, I guess he actually lives closer to Perry, but of course you have the group that feels screwed and that's understandable.

The rumor mill has Mark Percassi, West G. Offensive Coordinator, may very well be the top contender for the West Geauga job.

Details to follow later.
