Central superintendent responds to report about coach
CENTRAL - The superintendent of the Central Community School System responded today to a News 2 report about a coach's reassignment.
Mike Gardner recently left his coaching position at the high school, and still teaches in the system. Community members told News 2 they believed the change was due to Gardner's part ownership of a local daiquiri shop.
Superintendent Michael Faulk told News 2 yesterday Central High's principal will also be reassigned starting July 1. Today, he said the reassignment had nothing to do with the coaching situation.
"Both of these men have been loyal and hardworking employees prior to the formation of our school system and have exhibited those same characteristics since our school system was formed," he said. "Knowing them I would expect that they will continue to work for the benefit of our students and the school system in their assigned positions."
