Albany High football staff adds veteran UAlbany coach

ALBANY, N.Y. (July 15, 2016) -- Former University at Albany defensive guru Mike Simpson is the newest addition to coach Joey DiPiazza's staff on the Albany High School football team.

 

Simpson (pictured at right) spent 23 seasons as the Great Danes' defensive coordinator before his retirement following the 2013 season. He spent a total of 28 seasons with the Danes. UAlbany won or shared six Northeast Conference championships (2002, 2003, 2007, 2008, 2011 and 2012) and captured two Eastern Football Conference titles (1997 and 1998) during his tenure.

 

In addition to his expertise on the football field, Simpson holds a master’s degree in educational administration. Please visit the UAlbany website to read more about his coaching career.

 

Simpson joins an Albany High program hoping to build on the achievements during DiPiazza's first season as coach in 2015.

 

After going winless for seven consecutive seasons, the Falcons won their last three games in 2015 behind a high-powered offense that returns many of its key players for 2016. Receiver Jarrell Chaney and running back Ky'ere Tillery both earned all-area and all-state recognition as juniors last fall.

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves about 9,500 students in 17 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
