Steubenville coach gets contract extension

The longtime head football coach of Steubenville High School landed a contract extension this week, despite the rape controversy that gripped the small Ohio town and the nation.

Reno Saccoccia was granted a two-year extension by the local school board, Steubenville Superintendent Michael McVey said Monday.

The decision comes about a month after two star Steubenville High School football players were convicted for sexually abusing a 16-year-old girl.
