Sirianni steps down as Southwestern football coach

Jay Sirianni, one of the best high school football coaches in Western New York, has stepped down as head coach of the Southwestern football team.

The news that his resignation was accepted by Southwestern's school board was first reported on Twitter by Dave DeLuca.

Sirianni was 101-26 in 12 seasons at Southwestern.

He helped lead Southwestern to consecutive state championships in 2008 (story, season info) and 2009, part of Section VI run in which the section won four state championships in those two consecutive seasons.

Those state titles were part of a 38-game win streak for Southwestern, which is tied for 18th-longest in state history.

The Trojans also went on an unlikely run to the 2011 state championship game, where it lost to Dobbs Ferry.

Sirianni, also a longtime voter on The Buffalo News small school poll, helped the Trojans in the 2014 Class C title game, in which they fell to Maple Grove/Chautauqua Lake.
