Football: Penn Charter tabs Coyle as head coach

Penn Charter has tabbed Tommy Coyle, formerly the head coach at Father Judge, as its new football boss.

Coyle, who previously served as Penn Charter's defensive coordinator, compiled a 73-76 record (.490 winning percentage) at Judge. In 2008, the Crusaders went 9-4 and advanced to the Catholic League championship game before losing to La Salle.

"Coach Coyle brings a level of expertise and energy to the Penn Charter football program that we believe will usher in another great era of Quaker football,” athletic director John Thiel said in a release issued by the school. “We are very excited about next fall.”

Before taking over at Judge, Coyle spent 13 seasons coaching at Penn Charter. He was the Quakers' defensive coordinator, first under Bill Gallagher and then Brian McCloskey.

Coyle replaces Jeff Humble, who stepped down after posting a 23-26 record in five years. Last season, the Quakers went 5-4 overall and 2-3 in the Inter-Academic League.
