SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The Springfield Catholic Fighting Irish have a new football coach Tuesday.

And he should be a familiar face to Ozark area football fans.

Steve Hancock is leaving Branson after 28 seasons to take over the Irish program.

Hancock is semi-retired and the move to Catholic will be easier for him to coach and teach while keeping his retirement status with the state of Missouri.

Steve Hancock won 198 games and finished second in Class 3 in 1987 and 1989.

Before Branson, Hancock coached at Stockton and he has 37 years of high school football coaching experience.
