Dave Krakoff, who led West Allegheny to a PIAA playoff victory for the first time in school history and helped Pine-Richland reach the WPIAL Class AAAA semifinals three years later, will be named the new basketball coach at Woodland Hills High School.
The school has called a news conference for 1 p.m. Thursday at the high school.
Krakoff coached for four years each at West Allegheny and Pine-Richland, beginning with the 2000-2001 season. He was 55-45 at Pine-Richland and led West Allegheny to a school-record 17 victories in 2004.
A graduate of Keystone Oaks High School and an English teacher at Pine-Richland for nine years, he will be the assistant principal at Woodland Hills Junior High School.
Krakoff, 36, spent the past year as an administrator for special projects at the Villages (Fla.) Charter School. While there, he also worked with the athletic programs.
At Woodland Hills, he will replace Aaron Tipton.
