YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Yorktown High School's head football coach, Mike Rescigno, has resigned, just 10 days after winning his 100th game with the program.

The 15-year veteran announced his decision Tuesday evening.

"To express what I am feeling tonight is difficult to put into words because these past 15 years have been some of the most fulfilling and rewarding of my life," Rescigno wrote.
