ROCKFORD, Mich. — Rockford High School has announced who will be taking over for longtime football coach Ralph Munger, who retired after 28 years.

The district has chosen Brent Cummings, who has been Rockford’s strength and conditioning coordinator, a track coach, and has held several assistant coaching positions on the football team. Cummings has been a teacher at Rockford schools since 2004.

“Brent checks all the boxes,” Rockford Superintendent Michael Shibler said in a release. “He is an educator first, which is a prerequisite for this position. Add to that his history with Rockford, understanding of our culture, and his outstanding personal and professional achievements. He is a great fit.”
