Bucs Head Coach Tony Dungy helps present Jesuit's Dominick Ciao with the High School Coach of the Week award
Jesuit High School Head Coach Dominick Ciao was honored as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' High School Football Coach of the Week on Wednesday at One Buccaneer Place.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach Tony Dungy congratulated Coach Ciao during an award presentation before Wednesday's practice. Ciao was presented with a framed Coach of the Week award, an autographed football, a $500 donation to his football program and Buccaneers T-shirts for his staff and players.
Since taking over the Jesuit program in 1986, Ciao has led the Tigers to a record of 109-57. During the 1990's, Coach Ciao's Tigers amassed a record of 83-30, best in Hillsborough County. The Tigers also went to the state playoffs seven times in those ten years, with the highlight being a state runner-up finish in 1992. Coach Ciao was honored as the State of Florida Coach of the Year for the 1992 season.
Prior to becoming the head coach at Jesuit, of which Bucs General Manager Rich McKay is an alum, Ciao was an assistant coach for the Tigers from 1978-1986.
Ciao was selected by a panelist of News Channel 8 and Buccaneers representatives after being nominated on the WFLA.com website.
