Len Zdanowicz, a Brick graduate and a former player and assistant coach under the legendary Warren Wolf, was approved by the Brick Board of Education on Thursday night as the Green Dragons' new head coach.

"I'm humbled and honored to have been given this opportunity to be the Head Football Coach at Brick Township HS,'' Zdanowicz wrote on Facebook. "I would like to thank everybody for the kind words and support."


Zdanowicz, who was Lakewood's offensive coordinator last year, takes over for Rob Dahl, who stepped down on April 2 after four seasons in which he led the Green Dragons to the 2013 Central Jersey Group IV title and the 2014 Class A South title. He becomes just the fourth coach in Brick's 58-year program history, the first 51 of which were under Wolf. Zdanowicz, who is currently the head coach of the boys lacrosse team, returns to his roots after having been an assistant under Wolf for 12 years and for two years at the beginning of Dahl's tenure.

Zdanowicz's hiring fills the final vacancy in the Shore Conference. The Green Dragons will graduate an outstanding senior class led by two-time All-Shore first-team quarterback Carmen Sclafani, defensive back Ja’Quez Johnson, linebacker James Juliano and lineman Chris Kimbiz, but do return several talented players, including SSN second-team All-Shore wide receiver Ja’Sir Taylor and defensive lineman Dan Finelli.
