One of Indiana’s great coaches has announced his retirement. Cathedral High School’s Head Football Coach Rick Streiff is retiring after leading the Fighting Irish football program for 23 years. His record during that time is 221-77. His historical tenure includes 10 state championships (the most in Indiana), 11 semi-states, 14 regionals, and 17 sectional titles. The Irish won five consecutive state titles and 32 straight tournament games during one incredible stretch. Rick will continue working at Cathedral High School and we are grateful he will continue to mentor and lead our students in the classroom. Coach Streiff exemplifies Cathedral's Holy Cross values and we are forever thankful for his leadership on the field and in the lives of hundreds of athletes. Thank you, Coach, and may God bless you. ... See MoreSee Less

I couldn't have asked for a better mentor while a student at Cathedral High School. Thanks Coach Rick Streiff for everything.

Much more then a coach to Cathedral he will be missed on the field. Cathedral will still be blessed to still have him in the classroom. Enjoy your family Coach, time for YOU.! Please don’t beat up on too many CYO teams.

Thank you for your dedication to the Cathedral family. Enjoy your family!

Good luck and God Bless.

Thank you for carrying on great football tradition. Sorry my grandson will not get to have your wisdom when they play @dear Ole Cathedral! Here’s to U Rick!

Congratulations and the best of luck in your new chapter in life

Congratulations Coach on a great career. Now you will be expected to be home on time. CHS has another coaching legend.

I will always remember my time in your Geography class and how you never let me forget that I was a Junior in a Freshman class (even though I was a transfer)! Thank you for your service and dedication to CHS! God Bless!

Thank you, Coach from the bottom of my heart! I was part of the State Championship team in '99.You instilled many life skills in myself and those around you. Best of luck on your next adventure.

An amazing man, coach, teacher, and mentor! Our Cathedral family is so incredibly fortunate to have you.

Congratulations, Coach. Enjoy all you new adventures with your family.

Congrats on a remarkable job! Cathedral has been blessed by ur dedication to its tradition. 1963 alumnus coached under Joe D.

HUGE loss for the Cathedral football program. Such a great coach and mentor for the boys. So many life lessons taught to the boys, how to be held accountable and win with Class. You will be missed!!

A good man who welcomed our son Aidan to the program for his only year of HS football in fall 2013. Slainte!

Congrats Coach Streiff!

One of my favorite Strieff quotes:” we get homered at Home!” That was in full evidence at the Last game v Columbus East. Probably contributes to retiring from coaching; it would exasperate me

WOW! Sorry to see him go! He will be hard to replace!

Thanks Coach. What a legend you have left. Hard shoes to fill.

Congrats Coach!

oh wow

Great coach, teacher and role model! Congrats on your coaching retirement!!

Noooooo! Say it ain’t so! Awesome coach. Such an inspiration to our boys

Congratulations to Coach Streiff and his wife Julianne for all they have done for CHS!!!!

Thanks for your Great run Coach Rick. Alyssa Evelyn O’Malia loved working with you and the staff, as a trainer for the Irish!

Love to see a Trojan do well! Good luck Coach You are a good man!
