Chris Cascio has resigned as head football coach at Northpoint Christian but will continue to work at the school in a different capacity.
Cascio will be the school’s strength coach and will be the head junior high football coach.
“I have decided to take a step back and spend more time as a dad and husband. After being a head coach for 19 out of 24 years of coaching, it is time to slow down and make sure my family is first in my life priorities. I plan on staying at Northpoint in the future as Strength coach and head Junior High coach,” Cascio said.
Cascio was 5-16 as the head football coach as the Trojans made the Division II-AA playoffs in 2017 as they finished 5-6 but the 2018 was a tough one to endure as Northpoint was winless at 0-10 and will head into the 2019 season with a 12 game losing streak.
Before taking over at head coach the last two seasons, Cascio served as the Defensive Coordinator for Northpoint for four seasons.
“In my six years as a varsity a football coach at Northpoint I’ve had the privilege as Defensive coordinator to coach in a state championship game and lead our team as head coach the past two seasons. This past season was extremely disappointing, but I am very proud of our players efforts while being their head coach. I want to thank my Northpoint family for a great six year run,” Cascio said.
Before coming to Northpoint in 2013, Cascio was an assistant coach at St. Benedict, DeSoto Central (MS), Olive Branch (MS), St. Joseph (AR) and Little Rock Catholic (AR).
