Shaler Area School District hired Jonathan LeDonne as its new football coach Wednesday by a 7-1 vote.

The 2001 Aliquippa grad, who was an ESPN All-American linebacker for Robert Morris, was a defensive coordinator for Donnie Militzer at Gateway last season. Militzer was hired Tuesday to coach at Charleroi.

“He knows Xs and Os inside and out,” Militzer said. “He's very good with the kids. They relate to him well. … He's just an all-around great coach and a great guy.”
