Jack McCurry, one of the most successful coaches in WPIAL football history, has retired after 35 seasons at North Hills High School.
McCurry took over North Hills in 1978 and had a 35-year record of 281-108-9. He won four WPIAL championships, including one co-championship, and also won a PIAA title in 1993.
McCurry finished his career third on the WPIAL list of all-time wins. His 1987 team finished ranked No. 1 in the country by USA Today.
McCurry released a statement that said, "I appreciate the opportunity that the district entrusted me for the past 35 years. I have enjoyed serving as the head football coach and hope that the North Hills Indians will continue to demonstrate success both on and off the field. I particularly want to thank all of the student athletes that played for me over the years and the assistant coaches for their support, as our success was a direct result of their collective work."
