BREAKING: Warsaw names Bart Curtis Head Football Coach

Curtis // WSBT 22

The Warsaw Community Schools Board officially approved the hiring of Bart Curtis as the new head football coach on Tuesday.

Curtis, a 2016 Indiana Football Hall of Fame inductee, boasts a career record of 201-102 in 27 seasons but most recently served as the head coach at Mishawaka where he led the Cavemen to a 90-35 record, six sectional titles and a state runner-up finish in 2012.

Curtis also boasts a pair of Northern Indiana Conference titles while at the helm for the Cavemen.

"We were truly fortunate to have an amazing field of candidates for this position, and it is not often someone of coach Curtis' experience and stature knocks on your door," Warsaw athletic director Danve Anson says.

"Coach Curtis has truly established himself as one of the states top coaches, we are excited to have him leading our program, and we look forward to the future of Tiger Football."

Prior to taking over at Mishawaka in 2008, Curtis coached at New Prairie (11 seasons, 84-38 with two sectional championships and one regional title) and Maconaquah (six seasons, 27-29).

Curtis takes over for Phil Jensen who retired from the position in December after compiling a program-record 104 wins over two stints with the Tigers.

Curtis is the 19th coach in Warsaw history and will likely join his son, Michael, who served as an assistant for the Tigers under Jensen.
