Frank Lenti out as football coach at Mount Carmel

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago's Mount Carmel High School has replaced head football coach Frank Lenti with former Caravan and NIU star Jordan Lynch.

In a statement, Lenti said it was the school's decision and not his. Lenti said he is not retiring and will remain as director of development.

"While I had hoped to honor the commitment I had given the Mount Carmel football student-athletes and families that I would coach them thru (sic) their time at Mount Carmel, the administration has decided otherwise. Contrary to what some may have heard, I am not retiring. I love coaching high school football and may pursue that at some point in the future. I will honor my commitment to Mount Carmel and will resume my daily duties in the Development Department for the time being," Lenti said in a statement.

Lenti won 11 state titles on the Caravan sideline, including 11 consecutive Catholic League crowns and 6 Prep Bowls.
