Lisbon coach steps down


LISBON — Lisbon football coach Alan Mikovich resigned his position on Wednesday shortly following a season in which the Blue Devils went 1-9.

Mikovich ended his two-year stint with the Blue Devils at 4-16.

The school district sent out a press release Wednesday afternoon thanking the coach for “his time and dedication he put into our students, athletes and the Lisbon football program.”

Mikovich did not return a message seeking comment.

Before coming to Lisbon, Mikovich was a defensive assistant coach at Austintown Fitch from 2007-2016. Before that he was a head coach at Jackson-Milton where he was 10-20 over three seasons from 2001-04. He also had assistant stints at Youngstown Chaney and Struthers.

Lisbon’s lone win this season was a 26-7 victory over winless East Palestine.
