The Rochester Athletic Department has released the following information regarding the hiring of a new head football coach for the Zebras' program:


Ron Shaffer will be recommended for approval to the RCSC School Board at the April 19 meeting as the Head Football Coach of Rochester High School for the 2021-22 school year.

Coach Shaffer was an assistant coach on the Rochester Football Staff for the 2020 season. Prior to this season, he was an assistant coach at Cass High School and Maconaquah High School with over 20 years of experience coaching football.


Coach Shaffer was selected as the next leader of the Zebra football program by an interview committee made up of fellow coaches, teachers, and administrators.
