Former East Hall football coach Al Pellegrino has died, according to Muscogee County School district athletic director Jeff Battles.

Battles posted the news on his Twitter page Tuesday morning.

"It is with profound sadness that the Muscogee County School District announces the passing of Coach Al Pellegrino, AD and Head FB Coach at Shaw HS on Monday, May 30. The MCSD coaching family would like to extend our thoughts and prayers to the Pellegrino family during this time."

Battles told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, Pellegrino died Monday while on vacation in Orlando, Fla.

Pellegrino was the head football coach at East Hall from 2000 to 2002 and was 13-18 overall. His best season was his first at Valhalla, going 7-4 with a trip to the Class 2A playoffs.

He spent the last four seasons at the helm of Shaw High School's football program in Columbus, Ga. He also was the school's athletic director. 

 

 



“The leadership and guidance Coach Pellegrino brought to the Shaw High School community and Muscogee County will be missed. Muscogee County School District would like to extend our thoughts and prayers to Coach Pellegrino’s family during this time”

Arrangements for Coach Pellegrino will be announced at a later date.
