Bishop McCort Rescinds Hawkins Hire

JOHNSTOWN, PA – Bishop McCort Catholic High School issued the following statement regarding the status of its head football coach search.

Tom Fleming, Principal of Bishop McCort Catholic High School, said: “Upon review and consultation of school protocol, Bishop McCort has unfortunately had to rescind its selection of Mr. Artrell Hawkins, Jr. to serve as Bishop McCort’s new head football coach.  Coaching successions go through a formal process, such as those protocols recently followed in the hiring of both Coach Murphy and Coach Davitch.  Unfortunately this process was not appropriately followed in this circumstance.  We spoke with Mr. Hawkins and we sincerely appreciate his understanding in this unfortunate situation.”

In the interim, Principal Fleming assures players and families that off-season conditioning will resume in the coming weeks as our players prepare for next season.
