Mishawaka football coach Bart Curtis leaving to lead Warsaw Tigers

(Carli Luca/95.3 MNC)

Warsaw Community Schools has announced the hiring of Bart Curtis as the new Warsaw Community High School football head coach.

Curtis will become the 19th coach of Tiger football since 1919. He takes over for Phil Jensen, who retired in December after compiling a school-record 104 wins over two stints at Warsaw.

Curtis is a 2016 Indiana Football Hall of Fame inductee who has a career coaching record of 201-102 in 27 seasons overall—the last 11 of which were achieved at Mishawaka where the Cavemen went 90-35. His Mishawaka teams won six sectional titles as well as regional and semi-state championships in 2012.

The teams also won NIC titles in 2009 and 2010 and ended Penn’s 153-game conference win streak with wins in both the regular season and playoffs during both football seasons.

He has also coached at New Prairie (11 seasons, 84-38 with two sectional championships and one regional title) and Maconaquah (six seasons, 27-29).


  1. Warsaw is getting a helluva role model, community activist and…oh yeah…football coach in Bart Curtis.
    Tiger Country….Give it a little time…The triple option is very effective, and I predict most of your offensive school records will fall within the next 4-5 years.
    Best of luck…!
