Tim Sweeney, a multisport standout at Derry in the early 1980s and played for the school's lone Keystone Conference championship team, was named the Trojans football coach Thursday.

Sweeney replaces Al Gaiardo, who resigned in November for personal reasons. The Trojans went 3-25 in Gaiardo's three seasons.

Sweeney played at Penn State from 1985-88 and was an assistant coach at Derry from 2006-09 under Ron Polinsky.

“There's two things that I associate myself with equal amounts of pride: That's being a product of Derry athletics and also being a Penn State football player,” he said.
