Joe McCourt stepped down Thursday as Roman Catholic's head football coach after seven seasons, citing a difference in opinion with school administrators regarding practice facilities and plans for the future. "We tried to give our program some relevance," McCourt said. "That's why we played the likes of Coatesville and Downingtown East. We wanted to be able to compete in the Catholic League against St. Joseph's Prep and La Salle. "But it's tough when you don't have a field at your school.

IN A TANGLED, bizarre ordeal that began Wednesday night, the Daily News has learned that Joe McCourt will no longer be the head football coach at Roman Catholic High. However, the explanation as to why requires some unraveling. What started as a story about how a volunteer assistant coach's arrest may have cost McCourt his job, morphed into a school official saying the former Roman star running back and linebacker stepped down of his own volition to "spend more time with his family.

WE'LL NEVER know what might have happened, had Villanova's John Robertson been able to play in Saturday's FCS quarterfinal against visiting Sam Houston State. The redshirt junior quarterback - who already is the program's all-time leader in total offense and tonight has a very good chance of winning the Walter Payton Award as the top player at the FCS level - was a late scratch due to a concussion suffered late in last week's second-round home win over Liberty. Senior Chris Polony - who actually beat out Robertson for the job in both 2011 and '12 - got his first start in 2 years and played about as well as he could.

St. Joseph is team of the year Paul Sacco won't compare his teams. The St. Joseph coach won't say whether his 2014 team was better than his 2011 team or his 2005 team.

St. Joseph went 11-0, dominated competition in the Cape-Atlantic American Division, and won its sixth consecutive Non-Public state title with a 55-0 victory over St. Anthony in the Non-Public 1 state title game.
