Mellor, who is a math teacher at Haverford, also coached JV baseball at the school.
Harriton is coming off a 5-5 season in the Central League.
A post on Haverford High’s Facebook page, congratulating Mellor on his new position, said:
“For the past 15 years or so we were fortunate to have a dedicated teacher, person, friend and coach at Haverford by the name of Justin Mellor. Today our friend was named head Football Coach at Harriton High School for the fall of 2013. We will miss Justin’s dedication to Haverford in so many ways. He helped so many students and coaches. Now it is time to wish Coach Mellor the very best at Harriton. He deserved this opportunity. Although we lost a good one we are all happy for him and wish him the very best. Thanks for the memories coach on the football field, baseball field, classroom and as an fine person!”
