Longtime football coach Curtis leaves Mishawaka to lead Warsaw

WARSAW, Ind. - The high school football coaching ranks endured a bit of a shakeup in Northern Indiana on Tuesday night.

Longtime Mishawaka head coach Bart Curtis was introduced as the new head coach at Warsaw.

Curtis, whose hire was approved at a special board meeting on Tuesday, moves to lead the Tigers after spending 10 seasons with the Cavemen.

While at Mishawaka, Curtis was a part of multiple sectional championships as well as a run to the 2012 state championship game. He boasts 201 career victories and eight sectional championships.

At an introductory press conference that Warsaw streamed on social media, Curtis said the toughest part of the decision was leaving the school he called home for so long.

While he moves to a new school, Curtis will be already be familiar with part of his new staff. His son, Michael Curtis is currently serving as the offensive line coach for the Tigers.

Curtis fills a vacancy at Warsaw left by Phil Jensen, who retired from coaching high school football in December 2017. Jensen, the first Warsaw coach to lead the Tigers to a playoff victory, passed the 100-win mark in his career this past season.
