Valley ties to the NFL keep growing

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Mahoning and Shenango Valleys have plenty of local ties to the National Football League and we're adding to that list.

Girard High School graduate Pat Meyer is joining the Chicago Bears as an assistant offensive line coach and former New Castle head coach Nick Rapone is heading to the Arizona Cardinals.

Meyer graduated from Girard in 1990. He spent 15 seasons in the collegiate ranks before becoming joining the Montreal Allouttes as their offensive line coach under new Bears coach Marc Trestman.

Rapone is joining the Cardinals as the secondary coach.

He's a New Castle graduate and was the head coach of the Hurricanes from 1993 to 1994.

Rapone was the defensive coordinator at the University of Delaware the last six years and is joining his first pro franchise.
