West Allegheny coach Kim Niedbala works with the team during practice Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2018, at the high school.

West Allegheny needs a football coach after all.

Kim Niedbala, the West A assistant tabbed to replace Bob Palko, tendered his resignation Sunday, athletic director Dave McBain said. The school district had decided last February to make Niedbala the team’s coach-in-waiting during Palko’s final season.

The district notified parents after receiving Niedbala’s resignation. McBain did not disclose Neidbala’s reasons.

“I will leave that up to him (to explain),” McBain said.

Niedbala could not be reached.
