Ron Cook: Good luck trying to replace Mike Zmijanac at Aliquippa

This isn’t so much about Mike Zmijanac, who was fired Wednesday night as Aliquippa High School football coach. He will be just fine. He grew up in Aliquippa and devoted his life as a teacher of creative writing and American literature for 39 years, coach of multiple sports and athletic director to the small, financially crushed district that was racially torn in the 1960s and 1970s and devastated by the collapse of the steel industry in the 1980s. He deserves a long, happy, healthy retirement.
