West Catholic High School has won three consecutive state championships under Head Coach Dan Rohn, but Rohn announced he is resigning his position to spend more time with his family.

West Catholic High School released the following statement on April 29:

We want to let the community know that Dan Rohn has submitted his resignation. Dan was serving as the head football coach, as well as the part-time facilities director at West Catholic High School. Below is Dan’s announcement of his resignation. We appreciate Dan’s service to West Catholic and wish him well in his new career. We will begin the process of determining a new head football coach immediately, and are confident that the program is in a good position to continue its winning tradition.

Rohn issued a statement addressing his resignation:

Dear All,

It is with much sorrow that I inform you that I am stepping down from all positions at West Catholic High School, effective immediately.

My ultimate goal was to coach football for two more years, in order to see Gabe through his football playing days, and to see both Jack and Gabe graduate from West Catholic. Due to recent changes in my career and changes occurring in the working environment at West Catholic for myself, I felt the decision to resign was in the best interest of myself and the school.

I have spent many sleepless nights over the past nine years running facilities, athletics, volunteering, working with development, and of course, coaching football. It has been physically and mentally exhausting. I have decided that now is the time to step back and focus on my family.

I feel very fortunate to have worked, coached, and become such good friends with so many players, coaches, teachers, and families, all who have worked as hard as I have to make West Catholic a tremendous community. I also feel fortunate to have had both Jack and Gabe play for me during part of their high school years, and that they are receiving a quality education from West Catholic.

I am saddened to leave the student-athletes, coaches, and parents who have committed themselves in preparation for the 2016 season.

I ask for your support in my decision, and please know that you all hold a special place in my heart.

Dan Rohn
