St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.)
has found its new football coach, someone well-acquainted with the powerhouse program.
Roger Harriott has accepted the position of head coach at St. Thomas Aquinas, according to multiple reports, including the Sun-Sentinel
"It's a privilege and more of a dream to take over a program like Aquinas," Harriott told the Sun-Sentinel's Dave Brousseau.
A native of Jamaica, Harriott was an all-county running back at Aquinas before playing at both Boston University and Villanova.
As a coach, Harriott led University (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.)
to national prominence, capturing a Class 3A state title in 2012.
Following the 2013 season, Harriott jumped to the college ranks, joining the staff at Florida Atlantic.
He resigned from that position last month, citing the desire to spend more time with his family and pursue a job outside of football.
Given his success in the high school ranks and his familiarity with the Aquinas program, Harriott will likely be a popular hire among Aquinas supporters.
