CHATHAM, NJ - Daniel Czepiga, who has been the offensive coordinator at Ewing High School for the past four years, will become the new head football coach at Chatham High if approved by the board of education at Monday's meeting.

The 34-year-old Czepiga served as a freshman coach, varsity special teams and linebackers coach in 2012 at Ewing and then took over as the offensive coordinator from 2013 through 2016. While running the offense for Ewing, his teams gained more than 1,000 yards rushing each year. In three of those years, the offense he guided ranked in the top 40 in the state in yards, averaging 311 yards per game.

He started his coaching career as the defensive coordinator for Allentown in 2009, helping the team to its first winning season and first 5-0 start in 52 years. Czepiga took a defense that gave up 30 points per game before his arrival and reduced it to 19 points allowed per game.
