Southern Door Athletic Director Joey Charles was on a short list of teachers impacted by the failed referendum and has seen his athletic director position disappear. The Southern Door graduate is one of three state champions in wrestling and has been teaching at the school for ten years. He was offered only a 50% teaching position after the A.D. role was eliminated due to cuts. The dean of students position was also cut, according to numerous sources in the school.
Southern Door also announced the hiring of a new varsity football coach this week. Dan McCarty helped Sturgeon Bay win a state championship in 2004 and would love to help the Eagles reach great heights again. McCarty’s nephew Cal McCarty was an all-state punter last year as a junior.
