Leveille Takes Over Coaching Reins at Engadine
The Engadine football program will be under a new direction this fall as alum Vince Leveille takes over the coaching reins.
A 1985 Engadine graduate, Leveille succeeds former high school teammate Howard Hood who stepped away last December after 31 years with the Eagles. Both played under former Engadine coach Joe Austin.
Leveille most recently served as an assistant coach under Austin at Newberry and brings a wealth of coaching experience to the Engadine sidelines. Leveille spent 11 years as head coach at Vassar High School and was an assistant coach at Saginaw Valley State. He was also head coach of the Saginaw Sting of the Ultimate Indoor Football League, leading the team to a league championship in his lone season with the Sting in 2011.
“I want to continue the success that those guys started,” Leveille said. “Coach Austin was my high school coach back in the day. Coach Hood and Coach Livermore were both teammates of mine, so I just kinda want to continue the winning ways of Engadine. Our system may look a little bit different just because I’ve coached different levels, but I’m hoping to just continue winning like they did.”
Leveille takes over an Engadine program that went 8-2 in 2019 and has made nine consecutive playoff appearances.
