The EVSC has named a new head football coach at North High School.

On Monday night, the EVSC Board of School Trustees approved the hiring of Bret Szabo as the head football coach. 

Szabo replaces Mike Wilson who has retired after serving as head football coach at North since 1989.

For the past 10 years, Szabo has served as the head football coach, assistant athletic director and teacher at Bedford North Lawrence High School in Bedford, Ind. Prior to that position, Szabo served as teacher and assistant football coach at Harrison High School from 1992-2003.

Over his 21-year coaching career, Szabo has acquired a list of accomplishments, including being named twice as an Indianapolis Colts Coach of the Week and receiving the All-Conference coach award.

Szabo also has received two Seven Star Awards, presented by the North Lawrence Community Schools Corporation for outstanding achievements in coaching. 

In addition, he has won a conference championship and in 2011 his team was sectional champions. Szabo has established feeder systems at Bedford North Lawrence, which have built team numbers to higher levels than the school had seen previously.

As assistant coach at Harrison, Szabo helped lead the team to four conference titles in nine years.

"We are very excited about the future of the North High School football program," said North Athletic Director Peyton Stovall. "We look forward to Coach Szabo working with our student athletes on and off the field. We welcome him to the EVSC and look forward to him leading the North Huskies and working with the community to build an outstanding program."

Szabo also is an active member of the Indiana Football Coaches Association.

He holds a Master's degree in Education from the University of Southern Indiana and a Bachelor of Arts degree in social studies from the University of Evansville.

He has served as an adjunct professor at the University of Southern Indiana.
