Goggio said, “I am extremely excited and grateful to lead the Panthers football program. I am committed to giving my best to the players, school and community.”
Patton Athletic Director Jeff Williams said, “Coach Goggio’s goal coming out of the gate is to have a winning record and make the state playoffs. He eventually wants to take the program to where it is competitive in the playoffs and build a culture of success. We are excited about what he brings and the future of Patton football.”
