Mike Brennan recently ended his nine-year stint as head football coach at Mount Carmel Area High School by winning his 3rd District IV Championship and MCA’s 7th. Big Red would also win the Inaugural championship of the new Heartland Conference. He led the Tornadoes to a fine 13-1 record, eventually losing to Lancaster Catholic in the Eastern semi-final. The 2008 Red Tornadoes would establish a new season record for points scored with 539 and would be one of only 6 teams in MCA’s 116 year history to win 13 games.

Brennan would win 84 games at MCA, good enough for 3rd place behind Jazz Diminick and Mike Terry. He was named the AP Small School Coach of the Year following the 2000 season, as well as, then AA Coach of the Year by the Pennsylvania Football Coaches Association in 2000 and 2002. He has served as an assistant for the PA Big 33 game in 2006 and was an assistant in the PA East-West all-star in 2005. Michael is a 1993 graduate of Temple University with a BS Degree in Health Education. Mike will now move on to Blue Mountain High School where we wish him the best of luck – as long as he is not playing the Red Tornadoes.
