New C. Milton Wright High School head football coach Marc Alegi had an opportunity to work with some of his players during this past Saturday's Air It Out 4 tournament at Bel Air High School.
Alegi, an assistant at CMW the past two seasons, has taken over the program at the Bel Air school from Dave Yohn.
An administrator at C. Milton Wright confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Yohn, the Mustangs' head football coach for the past three seasons, has been replaced by Alegi.
Before he joined the CMW staff, Alegi was head football coach at Bel Air High School
CMW Assistant Principal Bryan E. Pawlicki verified in a phone interview that Yohn is no longer in charge of the CMW football squad and that Alegi officially took control of the program in late June.
Pawlicki declined to comment on the circumstances that led to the coaching change, but the change was common knowledge within the football program since early this year, according to posts on the CMW-Touchdown-Club Facebook Page.
Yohn, who teaches English at CMW, replaced Rich Keech as the Mustangs' head coach prior to the 2009 season. Over the last three campaigns his teams compiled a 6-24 record.
Alegi was at the helm of the Bel Air Bobcats in 2008 and 2009, posting a 7-13 record over the two-season span before being replaced by Bel Air's current head coach, Dave Huryk, in 2010.
Following his departure from the Bel Air program, Alegi signed as an assistant coach under Yohn at CMW.
In the winter of 2011, Alegi was one of the 23 applicants vying for the open head coaching position at Harford Tech, which was eventually filled by John Watson.
Alegi is a physical education teacher at Havre de Grace Middle School, Lindsay B. Bilodeau, of the school system's Communications Office confirmed Tuesday.
