C-M hires Sohyda as football coach
Tim Sohyda, a former player and assistant coach at Canon-McMillan, was unanimously hired as the Big Macs head football coach Thursday afternoon during a special meeting of the Canon-McMillan School Board.
The 35-year-old Sohyda, a 1992 Canon-McMillan graduate and honorable mention All-American center at Clarion University, replaces Guy Montecalvo, the school's athletic director. Montecalvo spent seven years as C-M's football coach following a 23-year stay at Washington.
When Montecalvo was hired in 1993, Sohyda was the only assistant coach retained. He was an assistant at C-M under Dan Pallante for four years.
Sohyda also worked as an assistant coach at Ringgold and he spent the past three years at West Mifflin.
Canon-McMillan finished 3-6 in 2009 and must overcome the loss of Division I recruits Chad Hagan (Ohio State) and Mike Hull (Penn State).
