Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood Football has a new head coach . In May, the school officially removed the “interim” tag and made Dave Cord its sixth full-time coach since 1943. He served as defensive coordinator on Johnson’s staff for five seasons and has been in touch with his predecessor frequently. Cord has now coached seven football games at Ridgewood High School .

Last fall Cord, took over a 5-0 team, after health issues forced longtime coach Chuck Johnson out of action. Ridgewood went on to defend its sectional title, then upset Union in a wild North Group 5 final to claim its first NJSIAA regional championship.
