Chaminade hires ex-Aquinas offensive coordinator Jason Milgrom as new football coach

In the hopes of returning its program to a state championship level, Chaminade-Madonna announced Thursday it has hired longtime St. Thomas Aquinas assistant coach Jason Milgrom as its new football coach.

Milgrom, a coach at Aquinas for the past 13 seasons, was a part of five state championship teams which two national title seasons. As co-offensive coordinator in recent years, Milgrom’s offenses put up huge numbers including a 45-point per game average this past season as the Raiders won the Class 7A state title.

Milgrom was an All-State offensive lineman for Aquinas in high school and part of the school’s first state championship team in 1992.

Chaminade-Madonna, which went 3-7 this past season, won state titles in 2003 and 2005, but has not won a playoff game since 2009.

"I am extremely humbled by the opportunity that Chaminade-Madonna has given me and my family," Milgrom said. "We cannot wait to get to work."
