Head’s up — looks like Lombo won’t be with Wayzata next year as he has taken the head coaching job at Maple Grove! Here is an excerpt from the Strib, as well as a link to the full article:
“Matt Lombardi, defensive coordinator for Wayzata’s football team the past seven seasons, has resigned to take the head coaching job at Maple Grove.
Lombardi, whose defenses spurred the Trojans to Class 5A football titles in 2005, 2008 and 2010, replaces Craig Hansen, who recently resigned after serving as the first and only coach in Maple Grove’s 14-year history. Lombardi announced his decision to Wayzata’s players in a meeting Wednesday morning.
Lombardi, whose father, Robert Lombardi, is a member of the Illinois High School Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame, helped build Wayzata into one of the state’s elite programs. The Trojans went 73-12 during Lombardi’s seven seasons, with the defense pitching 23 shutouts.”
