Wildman returning to coach football in Sharon

Posted: Updated:

SHARON, Pennsylvania - The Sharon Board of Education has officially named Jim Wildman as head football coach.

Wildman received a three year contract and is no stranger to Sharon football.

He was the head coach for 25 years before stepping down after the 2001 season after leading the Tigers to two state title game appearances.

The veteran coach has been out of the game for more than 10 years, but feels the time is right to come back.

"I feel humbled, because I know where the program has been, where it can go. I'm anxious and excited to get started; determined to get the job done. I think people often ask me why? The answer is, you love what you do and do what you love. It's been to long being away from what I love doing," Wildman said.
