The Washington School Board voted Monday night to open all of the high football coach positions.
Bill Britton had been the head football coach for six years before the decision was made to reopen the position.
The vote came after a lengthy executive session.Britton, a long-time Prexies assistant before becoming head coach in 2003, had a career record of 27-30-1 and he guided Washington to the WPIAL Class AA quarterfinals in 2005. In 2008, Washington finished 1-8 – its worst record since 1969.
