New Kensington-Arnold School Board hired Chad Walsh as Valley High School's football head coach by a 5-2 vote Thursday. Walsh replaces Mark Kaczanowicz, who was named coach in December 2010 and part-time athletic director last year after serving about a year as interim AD.

Kaczanowicz, who reapplied for the coaching position, will remain as AD. Kaczanowicz declined comment.

Walsh has served as an assistant at Highlands, West Shamokin, Valley and Kiski Area. He spent four seasons at Valley, ending in 2010. Valley is riding a school-record 22-game losing streak but will move from Class AAA to AA this fall.
