NJ's winningest football coach wants to return

New Jersey's all-time winningest high school football coach wants to rescind his retirement and return to the sidelines. Warren Wolf is angry because the Brick Township school superintendent has recommended someone from out of the district to succeed him. The 81-year-old was the school's only coach.

Superintendent Walter Hrycenko recommended the school board hire Patrick Dowling.

Dowling coached the Allentown Redbirds to a 2-8 record last season.

Wolf has a record of 361-122-11 in 51 seasons. His Brick teams won six NJSIAA sectional championships.

Wolf retired in December.

No decision on a replacement has been made because voters rejected the school district's proposed budget.
