The Ironton Fighting Tigers have a new head football coach, Sort of!
Former Head Coach Bob Lutz was rehired this morning during a special school board meeting.
The hiring comes a week after Merril Triplett Jr. resigned to take the head coaching job at Portsmouth West HS. Triplett was hired as Ironton’s head coach after Lutz retired prior to start of the 2006 season.
Lutz is the second-winningest football coach in the state of Ohio.
