ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) After two seasons as Jefferson football's head coach, Tony Ambrogio has been hired to take over the same position at Lutheran.
Ambrogio led the J-Hawks to a 1-17 record in 2017 and 2018 and previously coached at Christian Life for four years where the Eagles went 26-14 with three playoff appearances.
"Working as a head football coach and athletic director at a faith based private school and a head football coach and a student athletic coordinator at a large public school has prepared me for the opportunity at Rockford Lutheran," said Ambrogio. "I'm very excited to be a part of the Rockford Lutheran community. I hope to have continued success on the football field. We build our program upon a strong Christian foundation and mold our young men into outstanding community members; teaching life lessons through the game of football."
The Crusaders missed out on the playoffs the last two years under Chuck Leonard where they went 3-15.
