Berlin Public Schools named a new high school football coach.
Officials announced Thursday that Joe Aresimowicz will be serving as head coach for the Red Coats starting in the 2016-2017 football season.
Last year, former head coach John Capodice was removed after he was accused of illegally recruiting players from New Britain.
Aresimowicz has served as the team’s freshman football coach since 2009.
He also served as director of Berlin’s Midget Football Program and has worked with Berlin Little League.
Aresimowicz was elected to the Connecticut General Assembly in 2004 and is currently the house majority leader for the Democratic Party.
