West York High School graduate Matt Glennon is the new head varsity football coach at York Tech.

Glennon's hiring was approved at Thursday's Joint Operating Committee meeting.

Glennon replaces Doug Wilkinson, who was not rehired after consecutive 2-8 seasons with the Spartans.

"I am excited to be the new head football coach at York Tech and appreciate the support that the administration has shown toward building a successful football program here at Tech," Glennon said in a news release issued from the school. "I am eager to continue building on the existing foundation at York Tech and I am excited by the amount of returning players that have been working hard in our offseason strength and conditioning program."

Glennon comes to Tech with extensive coaching experience, including: four years as head coach at Westmont Hilltop High School in Johnstown; five years as defensive coordinator at Central Dauphin High School in Harrisburg; and most recently has served as defensive coordinator at York Tech for the 2012 football season. Glennon was hired as a social studies teacher at York Tech in July, 2012.

Glennon's teams at Westmont Hilltop struggled, going 10-30 in his four seasons there. At Central Dauphin, however, Glennon helped the Rams to District 3-AAAA playoff appearances in four of his five years on the staff.

Glennon played for West York High School and earned his varsity letter as a tight end and linebacker. He graduated from West York in 1989. He continued his football career at Dickinson College, where he lettered as a tight end and fullback.
