The Bellarmine-Jefferson High administration was looking for a new football coach and athletic director with expertise, experience and a vision to help build the school's sports programs.
The school seems to have found all those attributes in Lance Fauria, who has hired Wednesday evening by Bell-Jeff.
"We're really happy to have Lance on board here and we're hoping that he is going to be able to continue to move our football program forward," Bell-Jeff Principal John Matheus said. "We are getting a man here who has an awful lot of experience. He is a guy who thinks more than just in terms of football, and he is a person who believes in very strong character skills and he knows our mission as a Catholic school."
Fauria said, although having a successful football program at Bell-Jeff is important, he realizes he also has other obligations to the athletes of the school.
