St. John Vianney High School

Thank you, Paul Day


St. John Vianney High School announced Friday that football coach Paul Day, who led the Griffins to two state championships in six years, is resigning effective the end of this semester.  

Day was announced as Vianney’s coach in February 2013, following 15 years at Fort Zumwalt West High School and five at Owensville High School. 

He went 51-23 with three district championships and two Missouri Class 5 championships (2016, 2018) in six seasons leading the Griffins. The 2016 state title was the first football championship in school history. 

Day taught leadership classes at Vianney in addition to coaching football.

“The Vianney family is grateful to Paul Day for his dedication to the football program and the work ethic he brought to his players,” Vianney President Mike Loyet said. “He has certainly raised the bar as he constantly strove for excellence within the football program. Coach Day will be remembered for his exciting style of football and a never-give-up attitude. We wish Paul, his wife Jen and his entire family the best of luck on the next steps of their journey.”

St. John Vianney High School has already begun the search for our next head football coach and we maintain our commitment to a program of the highest quality. This is an exciting opportunity for Vianney to seek and hire a mission-driven, knowledgeable and passionate leader of young men to continue our history of football excellence.
