EAST CANTON, Ohio (JMN Sports) – The Osnaburg Board of Education has reversed course and voted to renew John “Spider” Miller as East Canton head football coach.

The unanimous 5-0 vote was made during an emergency meeting on Wednesday night.

“Tonight the Board voted to renew the football coaching contract of Mr. Miller after having the opportunity to hear from the community,” East Canton Superintendent Kevin Finefrock said in a statement. “We thank the East Canton community for their input and patience as we worked through this issue.”

Miller will return to the Hornets’ sideline, where he has amassed a 34-27 record with five playoff appearances over six seasons.
