Southmoreland hires coach

Mark Adams has been hired as the new football coach at Southmoreland.

“He's done a very, very nice job for us,” Superintendent John Molnar said of Adams, who has been a Scotties assistant the past two years. “We have a program in place, and he's been with the program. We don't want to start from scratch. ... We don't want another rebuilding year if we can avoid it.”

Adams, who was the coach at Leechburg from 2008-2011, replaces Dominic Pecora.
