One and done. That’s the story for Daniel Roane, who was hired as head football coach at Redemptorist in July.
Roane confirmed he will no longer be the coach for the Class 2A Wolves on Tuesday night, saying he was “let go” on Monday.
“There really isn’t much I can say about it,” Roane said. “I was called in on Monday. I feel bad for the kids and love each and every one of them like they were my own. I hope they all continue to work hard in football and in school.”
The Wolves finished 0-9 in 2012 and played the season with a small squad comprised primarily of freshmen and upper classmen who were first-year players.
Roane declined to make additional comments. He was the school’s third coach in the two seasons since Guy Mistretta resigned after leading the Wolves to the Class 3A 2010 quarterfinals. Mistretta now coaches at The Dunham School, a District 8-2A rival of Redemptorist.
Aaron Vice coached Redemptorist to a 4-7 record in 2011 and is a now a graduate assistant coach at LSU. Craig Laborde was initially hired to replace Vice but accepted a job at a Pensacola, Fla., in early July.
Roane, 28, is a LSU graduate and a Lake Charles native who came to RHS after a stint as an assistant coach at Houma’s Terrebonne High.
He said he hopes to remain in the Baton Rouge area as a teacher-coach.
