Everett High School football coach John DiBiaso will be going out on top.

After winning a second-straight Division 1 state title last weekend, DiBiaso informed his players Wednesday that he will be stepping down as the head coach of the Crimson Tide.

DiBiaso, who also coaches the boys basketball team and serves as Everett’s athletic director, will stay on through the end of the school year.

The 61-year-old DiBiaso is leaving behind quite a legacy at Everett, his alma mater. Last Saturday’s 35-10 win over Xaverian at Gillette Stadium was the 12th Super Bowl victory for the Crimson Tide since DiBiaso took over the program in 1992. His teams logged a total of 17 Super Bowl appearances, and DiBiaso compiled a 252-33-0 record in his 26 years with Everett. The program’s run of supremacy includes two occasions when the Crimson Tide won three straight Super Bowl titles: 2010-12 and 2001-03.

Most recently, Everett defeated Xaverian two years in a row in the Super Bowl, getting the job done with a 21-7 win at Manning Field last December. This October, he became the fourth football coach in state history to win 300 games after his team beat St. John’s Prep in the opening round of the Division 1 North state tournament.

Prior to coaching at Everett, DiBiaso spent six years at St. Patrick’s in Newton and another four years at Weston, leading the Wildcats to a Super Bowl title in 1991 before leaving for Everett.
