"Since seeing his NFL career end in 2007, Plum High School graduate Matt Morgan has worked as a sales representative for a fitness equipment company.

Morgan is now trying to sell his football knowledge and work ethic to students at his alma mater in hopes of reviving what is one of most struggling programs in the WPIAL.

Morgan, a 1999 graduate, was hired by the school as its new head coach Feb. 26.

"It's nice to be back home finally," said Morgan, who lives just a few minutes from the high school. "It's nice to get back to my community. I want to see the team turn itself around. I always wanted to come back to Plum eventually.""
