On Thursday, May 4, 2017, officials from Hamilton Local Schools announced the selection of Michael Savino as head football coach of Hamilton Township High School.
Savino began his tenure at Hamilton Township when he became quarterbacks coach in 2010 before being promoted to offensive coordinator in 2014, a position he held until being named head coach of the Rangers. While serving as offensive coordinator, his offenses have averaged 437.5 yards from scrimmage, nearly 40 points per game, and the Rangers qualified for the state playoffs all three years.
Recently, Savino’s screen game was presented at the Ohio State University’s 86th Annual Coaches Clinic. He also earned the 2014 Assistant Coach of the Year Award from the Central District Football Coaches Association (CDFCA).
“Our football program has grown into a consistent winner and garnered many league titles in recent years,” explained Hamilton Local Superintendent Bill Morrison said. “Coach Savino has been instrumental in getting our program to that point while serving as an assistant coach and offensive coordinator. He emphasizes toughness and teamwork, and I believe our community can appreciate that mantra because we Rangers are tough and work very well together.”
Prior to his arrival at Hamilton Township, Savino coached quarterbacks and was an offensive coordinator in two professional indoor football leagues. He had stints with the Dayton Warbirds (United Indoor Football League) and the Miami Valley Silverbacks (National Indoor Football League). Savino played quarterback collegiately for Ohio Dominican University and in high school for Kettering Alter.
