GREENFIELD — A spring filled with Greenfield-Central athletic transition chalked up more turnover Friday when Roger Dodson resigned as head football coach.
Dodson, who is also retiring as a teacher, went 29-57 in eight seasons with the Cougars.
At the same school board meeting Friday in which Dodson’s retirement/resignation was accepted, the Cougars named a new boys basketball coach (Michael Lewis) and new boys soccer coach (Isaac Beal).
Previously, Kevin Horrigan announced his retirement as athletic director effective at the end of the calendar school year and former boys soccer coach Jared Manning was tabbed as his replacement.
Horrigan cited looming statewide changes to teacher/administrator retirement funding as a reason for his departure. Dodson, who went 93-116 in 22 years overall as a head coach, also was forced to consider financial implications, according to G-C assistant athletic director and girls basketball head coach Doug Laker.
