FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - Northrop High School football head coach Tim Martone resigned Thursday after four seasons with the Bruins.
Northrop athletic director Bob Shank announced Martone's resignation, thanking Martone for rebuilding the football program during his tenure.
"Tim's been a part of Northrop for a long time and truly bleeds Brown & Orange," Shank said in a statement. "The program is in a better place because of his effort."

Martone assumed the helm in 2010, taking over a team that finished 0-10 in 2009. He would coach the Bruins to a 12-28 record over four years.
Shank touted Martone's role in the Bruins' 14-13 overtime win over Bishop Luers this season and a 16-10 win over Bishop Dwenger last year.
