South Park School District is pleased to announce the hiring of head football coach Brian Abbey, a longtime assistant Eagles coach with championship experience as both a player and leader.

His hiring was approved on April 13 by the South Park School District Board of Directors.

Coach Abbey's deep roots in the football program began as a player when he was a member of the 1997 Eagles team that claimed both WPIAL and PIAA titles. After graduating from South Park High School in 2001, Coach Abbey returned to the program as an assistant coach in 2004 and helped the Eagles sweep both the district and state championships once again in 2005. Most recently, Coach Abbey served as the Eagles' assistant head coach and offensive coordinator since 2015. He has implemented effective systems, formations, terminology and communications within the offense, while also developing weekly game plans and handling play-calling duties.

“As a 25-year member of the South Park Eagles football program, I strongly believe that I am prepared to take my dedication and commitment within this program to the next level,” Coach Abbey said. “Knowing this program inside and out, I understand that its most valuable assets are the student-athletes. As a product of this program and school district, I strive to pass on the character development that was provided to me. Leading these players to excel not only athletically, but in their development as well-rounded adults, is paramount in this role. In addition, I will continue to work with the incredible professionals that make up this district. South Park truly holds a special place in my heart.”

Coach Abbey is a teacher in the Brownsville Area School District who has additional coaching experience in track & field and basketball. His wife is also a teacher and they are the proud parents of Bryson and Everett.

We congratulate Coach Abbey on his new role and share in both his excitement for the future of the football program and dedication to our student-athletes. Go Eagles!
