The has announced that football coach Darren McKay will no longer be coaching the Tides football team.
Superintendent Terry Bouck, who met with McKay at the district headquarters Friday afternoon, released the following statement to Patch.
The district has chosen not to offer Mr. McKay a coaching contract for the next year. As we approach spring break, we felt that it is essential to the success of our program to make a decision about the head football coaching position to allow adequate time for transition.
Mr. McKay was offered a plan for improvement but has not shown sufficient progress on that plan. As a result, we felt that it was in the best interest of our community to move forward in a different direction.
McKay currently teaches physical education and health at the high school, and Bouck said today’s decision will not affect his teaching position.
He said the district plans to meet next week to discuss options for a replacement coach.
The decision comes after members of McKay’s coaching staff, players past and present and their parents attended .
