Joe Pinyan joined the Catawba Football Staff in the spring of 2019.  He previously served as the Head Football Coach at Jesse Carson High School (2013-2019) and Salisbury High School (2003-2012).  He will be coaching tight ends after coaching outside linebackers in 2019.

Pinyan’s tenure as a Head Football Coach in Rowan County, covering sixteen years, included thirteen playoff appearances.  The playoff appearance in 2010 concluded with a State Championship victory for Salisbury High School.  On two other occasions at Salisbury High School (2009 and 2012), the playoff trail ended in the Western Finals---one game shy of a State Championship appearance in those seasons.  Combining the two head coaching stints, his teams won 128 games in sixteen years.

Throughout his coaching career at the High School level, Pinyan was selected as an Assistant Coach for the North Carolina Shrine Bowl staff in 2007 and named Head Coach for the North Carolina Coaches Association (NCCA) West All Stars in 2011.  He served a four-year term on the Board of Directors for the NCCA (2012-2016), President of the NCCA (2017-18), and NCCA Past President (2018-2019).

Before becoming a Head Football Coach, Pinyan was an assistant for fourteen years at Mooresville High School and prior to that, two years at East Rowan High School.

Pinyan graduated from Appalachian State University (BS in Recreation, MA in Physical Education/Athletic Administration).  He resides in Salisbury with his wife, Gina.  They have a son, Matthew, who resides in New York and a daughter, Amie, who lives in Charlotte with her husband, Riley.
