Sunday, August 16, 2015 | 9:53 PM

New Faces – New Places – New Hopes – New Dreams. While there were two fewer coaching change this off-season then before the 2014 campaign, there were some big names that either hung up the whistle or changed sidelines for this upcoming season. Some of the changes include former championship winning coaches in Tom Loughran and Dave Vestal moving elsewhere while the legendary Joe Hamilton is out at Blackhawk. There are a lot of rookie head coaches getting their first crack, and some coaches who are just changing hats and addresses. Whatever the case, there are 19 coaching changes coming into this 2015 season. Here are the new football coaches that will be running the sidelines in the WPIAL this fall.
