Paul Lepre has resigned as Methacton’s head football coach after eight seasons with the program.
Lepre took over in 2010, eventually guiding the Warriors to an 8-2 finish in 2014. But with numbers a problem and a roster in the low-to-mid 30’s the past three seasons, the Warriors slumped to 4-28 over that stretch, including an 0-10 finish this past fall. His overall record with Methacton was 35-52.
Lepre, a 1979 Methacton graduate, tried to redirect a program that hadn’t had a winning season since going 8-3 in 2000.
Prior to being named head coach, Lepre had worked under longtime Warriors coach George Marinkov for 15 seasons.
After Marinkov resigned following the 2005 season, Lepre teamed up with former Lansdale Catholic coach Jim Algeo. The first two of those seasons would wind up being LC’s final two in the Pioneer Athletic Conference, as the Crusaders moved to the Philadelphia Catholic League.
Methacton would move from the Suburban One League to the PAC in 2008.
Lepre was just the fifth coach in the history of the Methacton football program, which kicked off in 1962.
