The guest on today’s USA Football Coach and Coordinator podcast is Chad Neal, head coach at Killingly (Connecticut) High School. Neal is in his 15th season as the head coach at Killingly and comes off an undefeated season and a Class M state championship. It is the first state championship in Neal’s coaching career and Killingly’s first undefeated season since 1953. At Killingly, Neal has compiled a 67-83 record, but has brought his team to at least the state semifinals each of the last three seasons.
Prior to coming to Killingly, Neal worked eight seasons at Putnam High School. He was promoted to head coach in his last season at Putnam before moving to Killingly. As an assistant coach, Neal worked as a defensive coordinator, special teams coach and freshman coach throughout seven seasons. Neal graduated from Nichols College (Massachusetts) with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration before getting a master’s degree in Education from Sacred Heart University (Connecticut).
On today’s podcast, Neal and host Keith Grabowski talk about how Neal brings his players together, uses a unique offense and is prepared for every situation.
