Glassboro Public School District Head Football Coach Mark Maccarone will wrap-up his tenure as the district’s football coach after this season’s final game against Deptford High School on November 22. The school district recently accepted his resignation. Maccarone has served as head coach since 2011 and was an assistant coach from 2008 – 2010. During his years as head football coach, Glassboro High School won the 2011, 2014 and 2015 West Jersey Football League Diamond Division Conference Championships and the 2011 and 2013 NJSIAA Group 1 South Sectional State Titles. During Maccarone’s head coaching years, the Glassboro High School Football Team also had two All-American Players, two All-Group All-State Players, two Players of the Year, four All Group 1 Players, three All-South Jersey players, five Touchdown Club Players of the Year and more than 25 First and Second Team All-Conference Players. Fifteen of Maccarone’s players went on to play in college with several receiving scholarships and one reaching the NFL.
Maccarone noted, “I am stepping away to pursue other opportunities that have arisen that fit better into my current career situation. I wish the team and next staff continued success.” Maccarone said that he has had the fortune of working with some of the best assistant coaches and also amazing players in Glassboro. He said, “I would like to extend my thanks to the Glassboro School District, parents and community for the support they have shown over the past seven years.”
The district wishes Maccarone well in his future endeavors.
