Bishop Canevin A Jesuit-inspired High School

New Head Football Coach Announced

The Bishop Canevin community is pleased to announce the hiring of TJ Wiley as its next Head Football Coach. Of the 14 candidates interview and many more considered, Coach Wiley impressed the committee with his energy, enthusiasm, experience, and emphasis on student athletes reaching their full potential in all facets of their lives. Coach Wiley was a four-year letter winner and three-year starting quarterback in college. After college he was fortunate enough to play football professionally in the Arena and Professional Indoor Football Leagues. Previously a head coach at Northgate, Penn Trafford, Deer Lakes, and Vincentian, Coach Wiley has had success at the Single A level of football, and has coaching experiences against a number of our current opponents. In addition to that experience Coach Wiley brings with him an accomplished staff that is excited about the opportunity of coaching our young, talented, and very promising team. Coach Wiley is the son of Pennsylvania Hall of Fame coach John Wiley, who will work as the offensive coordinator of the Crusaders, and will be joined by a veteran defensive mind in coach Hank Marziale. Coach Wiley's teams have always been known for their discipline, preparation, and execution of the fundamentals. A teacher at the nearby Bradley Center, Coach Wiley prioritizes academics. Coach Wiley was raised in a Catholic household and is very excited to get the opportunity to work within a Catholic school environment. We look forward to him working closely with our Bishop Canevin Academic and Campus Ministry teams during his time here. In addition to teaching and coaching, Coach Wiley is married to Lisa Wiley and is the proud father of Max and Lillian.
A meeting for students interested in playing football was held Tuesday, May 7th during an Activity Period with a parent meeting being scheduled in the near future. Please join us in welcoming Coach Wiley, his family, and his staff to the Bishop Canevin Community.
