Frank Gatto ended months of speculation yesterday when he announced he had resigned after seven years as the Spartans head coach.

Gatto, a longtime assistant at Notre Dame and the Irish head coach for one year, coached at Steinert for 12 seasons -- the first five as Kevin Hardiman's assistant.
Only the sixth head coach in the 47-year history of Steinert football, Gatto raised the bar for the Spartans by guiding them to the NJSIAA Central Jersey IV playoffs four straight years.It's the only time in Steinert history it made the post-season playoffs.
"The athletic tradition at Steinert is deep and rich and we value the coaches who built that tradition.Frank Gatto is one of them.
Gatto's last two seasons were his only losing ones at Steinert.His young 2005 team went 2-8,losing five games by a touchdown or less.
Gatto will stay at Steinert as a guidance counselor.
"It was a tough decision after 32 years in football," said Gatto, who played his high school ball at Woodrow Wilson (now Harry S Truman High) in Lower Bucks County, graduating in 1973.
Gatto's seven years as Steinert coach were marred by tragedy when two of his players -- Kevin McCarthy and Nick Gessner -- died a year apart.
"Frank was challenged with two major tragedies in his years as football coach, and showed tremendous leadership in both situations," said athletic director Rich Giallella.
"I was blessed to have Frank as my assistant in baseball for five years.We won three state championships with his help."
But it was football where Gatto will best be remembered by the CVC community.He has never lost his passion for coaching, but felt it best to step down now.
It was apparent a lot of things than went on behind the scenes the past year may have soured Gatto's love for coaching, but he neverlet it diminish his desire to make young boys into fine football players.He was an "old line coach" who made sure his players respected team and school rules.
Frank Gatto not only brought Steinert football to a new level, but was able to attract over 100 players a year to a program that for years took a back seat to soccer at the school.
"We developed a program for the kids and gave many of them an opportunity to get to college," he said proudly.
Gatto also credited help he got from parents booster clubs for helping increase the number of athletes his program was able to support."What makes Steinert special is the community support it has always received," he said.
"In the 12 years I coached here and the seven as head coach I had great kids.The memories I have of them money can't buy."
Although Gatto worked as hard as ever this past fall his team showed inexperience over the first three games which it lost by five, seven and six points.
"We had a rocky road with some tough losses, but they learned.The future is bright because the talent is there," said Gatto.
