South Park football coach Marty Rieck, who won state titles with the Eagles as both a player and assistant coach, has resigned after eight seasons leading the program.

His teams went 33-44 overall, qualified for the playoffs five times and once reached the WPIAL semifinals.

South Park went 5-6 last season, 4-2 in the Western Hills Conference and reached the WPIAL Class 3A playoffs.

Rieck won WPIAL and PIAA titles with South Park as a player in 1997 and again as an assistant coach in 2005. He was promoted to head coach in 2015, replacing Tom Loughran, who’d led the team for 32 years.
