ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Dan Appino is stepping down from his head coaching duties with Auburn High School football after six seasons. In that time he lead the Knights to the playoffs five times with an overall record of 43-20. He says he will continue to be a part of the program as either an assistant coach or volunteer in the 2018 season.

In a statement from Rockford Public Schools Coach Appino says, “I have reached a point in my career and life where the energy and enthusiasm needed to maintain that high-level position has eclipsed my ability and desire to fulfill those needs on a continual basis.”
