  • Coach Frank Amato (1926-2023)

    Remembering Coach Frank J. Amato

    Loyola Academy mourns the loss of longtime educator, mentor, coach, and friend Francis J. "Frank" Amato, who passed away on Saturday, January 28, 2023. He was 96. In the fall of 1966, Coach Amato came to Loyola, hired to teach physical education and coach football and track. What followed, in the nearly six decades since, was an extraordinary tenure as coach, teacher, and administrator. Coach built an unrivaled career marked by exceptional achievement to be sure, but, more importantly, by a generosity of spirit, a quiet dignity, and an authentic paternal presence. For over half a century, Coach Amato was one of the rocks of Loyola Academy, a constant that helped define the very tradition and the spirit of the Academy. Coach Amato was truly one of the finest there ever was.
