Greater Lowell Technical High School has an opening for a Head Football Coach with only weeks to go before the start of the School year.
The question is why did the Coach Kevin Callagy wait until July to resign and what if any connection exist to the School / Supt. hiring of a new Athletic Director/Phys.Ed Dept. head?
Rumors are circulating that the coach was told when hired he would be considered for the A.D job but because he is still working on his Master’s degree the “screening” committee didn’t pass him on as a finalist.
He felt he was lied to and walked away. It leaves the students in a tough position and any new coach in a tougher position to come in a create a program, hire a staff and do it in less than weeks before practises are allowed.
App. Deadline is August 2nd so a new Coach has a very short preparation period. Local football legend AL Pare worked on last years staff and he certainly has the qualifications and experience and would offer the students and school a great deal of stability if he chooses to apply.
The Supt. in the past has created friction when she waves the requirement for some – I have been told the Guidance Dept Head was one but not for others – Discipline Dept. for example.
I have an email out to the Supt. since it is her call and not the school committee and will post her response.
