Cardinal Gibbons announced Monday that longtime football coach Michael Morrill is stepping down as football coach after 17 years.
Morrill, who will remain as the school’s athletic director, has compiled an overall record of 113-67, and has the most wins in the school’s history.
Morrill guided Gibbons to 11 playoff appearances during his tenure coaching the Chiefs.
"It has been a privilege to have coached so many great young men through the years," Morrill said. "Cardinal Gibbons is a special place, primarily because of the people involved; students, coaches, faculty, administration. I think it is telling that so many students come back to the school in some capacity."

Gibbons announced that assistant coach Matt DuBuc, a 1992 graduate of the school, will succeed Morrill as head coach.
"Matt has been my right hand man for several years. The program is in good hands."
DuBuc, who played football at Texas Tech and four years in the Canadian Football League, has been on the Gibbons coaching staff the past 13 years.
"Having played for coach Don Marino and coached under coach Morrill, I have had the great fortune of being associated with two of the all-time greats of this program."
