Fatula new BC coach

The Bishop Carroll football team has found its new leader.

The school announced Tuesday that Robert “Bubba” Fatula will be the new head football coach after former coach Sean Billings stepped down from the position in late October 2019.

Fatula was previously the offensive coordinator at Blacklick Valley under former coach Bill Zamboni, who stepped down in 2017.

He will take over the program as it prepares to begin a two-year deal as the latest member of the Heritage Conference.

Bishop Carroll spent the last two seasons in the Mountain League as an associate member.

“It’s an honor to call myself a Bishop Carroll Husky,” Fatula said as part of a statement released on the school’s Facebook page. “I look forward to continuing a strong and respected tradition of football excellence.”

Fatula serves as a consultant and the director of threat preparedness at Gittings Protective Security and Investigations in Ebensburg.

“I am pleased to bring in Coach Fatula as the leader of our football team,” athletic director Dan McMullen said in the release.

“His approach to the game, as well as his ambition to create well-rounded individuals, will be invaluable to our school. He will be a great addition to our athletic staff and I am confident that he will work hard to grow our student athletes, on and off the field.”
