Trinity to open Dalton's position; Bentworth hires football coach
The Trinity Area School Board will open the head varsity football coaching position held by Ed Dalton.
Dalton, who has coached football at Trinity since 1999, was informed Tuesday by athletic director Bobby Jones of the action.
The Hillers went 5-4 this fall, and finished tied with Chartiers Valley and Belle Vernon for third place in the Big Eight Conference but missed the WPIAL Class AAA playoffs via head-to-head tiebreakers with both teams. It snapped a six-year playoff streak for Trinity.

* Bentworth didn't wait long to fill its vacant football position.
Less than three weeks after Lou Rood resigned following three difficult seasons, the school district hired Bob Niziol as its varsity football coach. Niziol served as one of Rood's assistants and works in the school district.
