At its first meeting of 2018, the Madeira City School Board approved Chris Stewart as the next head football coach at Madeira High School.
Coach Stewart comes to Madeira with a variety of experiences, most recently as a special teams coordinator and defensive backs coach at Anderson High School, where he helped guide Anderson High School to two playoff appearances. Prior to Anderson, Chris was the Offensive Coordinator at Wyoming High School where he helped guide an offense that set numerous records. Coach Stewart holds degrees from Miami University and Nova Southeastern University. Madeira High School is excited to welcome Coach Stewart, his wife Nicole and their 2 children to the Madeira family.
“It is an honor to be selected as the Head Football Coach at Madeira High School. I am looking forward to complementing the educational goals of the Madeira City School District by emphasizing the physical, mental and character development of each athlete through the game of football,” Stewart stated. “Football is a great tool to teach such traits as hard work, teamwork, performing under pressure, honor, and leadership. Football will allow these young men to learn these qualities through experience. It is our number one goal that every young man becomes a better person as part of going through our program.”
Chris Stewart succeeds Mike Shafer, who compiled a 71-44 record during his eleven years coaching varsity football at Madeira. Stewart’s first step as the new Madeira Mustang football coach was to meet with MHS football players to introduce himself and his coaching philosophies.
