Fillmore Central board looks into coach hirings


Fri, Nov 2nd, 2007
Posted in Education

HARMONY - The topic of who is going to coach winter sports at Fillmore Central, as well as the process by which the coaches are chosen, was a matter of long discussion at the regular school board meeting on Monday, October 29.

Athletic Director Jane Montgomery attended the meeting at the request of the board to answer any questions. Chairman Ron Stevens said there needs to be a process in place as to how coaching candidates are interviewed and hired. Montgomery said she didn't think she was the one doing the hiring; she was only giving her recommendations to the board, which then approved the coaches. The board members have a right to make any changes or make different recommendations.

Board member Sue Ostrom said, "We really are just rubber stamping. You do the hiring. We really don't have any idea who you aren't recommending."

Stevens was concerned that each person who applies for a coaching job should get an interview, and if they do not get the position, they should then be notified. This should apply for any job that is posted or open, and it should apply to everyone, even if they have coached for the district before.

"We're spinning our wheels here and not making any progress," said Stevens. "It's time to make some progress."

Montgomery said if there was a process written up somewhere she would be glad to follow it. She added that she does make contact with applicants who are not chosen for the job, despite some of the rumors that are currently going around. She also said that one person who said they applied for a job only left her a voice message, which she does not consider an application. She also has an informal post-season discussion with the coaches to discuss any problems or concerns and see how the season went, as well as looking forward to the next year.

Stevens believed it would make Montgomery's job easier to have procedures in place, and would give board members more information about how and why applicants were chosen. The extra-curricular committee will meet with Montgomery to get an application process in place that can be followed.

Montgomery gave the board her list of recommended coaches for the winter sports. Her list included Aaron Mensink for B-squad girls' basketball and Katie Marzolf for 9th grade girls' basketball. She also added that Blaine Moe would be taking on a part-time position as a Junior Varsity Wrestling coach. He would coach twice a week and take over on so .....
