FLYER NATION’S HEAD MAN HAS FINALLY LANDED
PUBLISHED BY KHARI DEMOS ON THU JUN 18TH
Maryvale Athletics Twitter (@MaryvaleAthlet1) confirmed Tuesday that Nick Todaro has taken over as the Flyers’ head football coach.
Coming off a Catholic state championship run with Canisius last season, Todaro’s coaching resume has taken him all around Western New York. After playing quarterback for Hutch Tech in high school, Todaro began his career with a four-year stint at Bishop Timon. He initially joined the Crusaders as the junior varsity coach in 2011 before working as the defensive coordinator at South Park (2012-14), becoming the head coach at St. Mary’s (2015), and serving as an assistant and interim gig as head coach with his alma mater from 2016-18.
With two years spent under three-time NYCHSAA champion coach Rich Robbins — and a nearly 20-year friendship with 2019 Class A sectional champion coach Tim Delaney — Todaro has seen what it takes to build up a team from ground zero and what strong leadership can do for a program.
He looks to reboot the Flyers from their 2-6 season in 2019, following a 31-13 stretch under Jeff Buccieri from 2014-18.
“Through my experiences, I’ve coached kids from all different backgrounds from all over WNY and I feel I am well suited to jump start this program during unique circumstances,” said Todaro via text message. “Everywhere I’ve been, you learn very quickly that building relationships with student athletes begins with showing them you care. Once kids believe you have their best interest at heart they will work their butts off for you and never quit. My program will be built on strong relationships and caring for one another.”
