Bobby Chadwick, who led Spring Hill to a 3-7 record in one season as head football coach and athletic director, announced today he is leaving the district to become athletic director at East Texas Charter School.
Chadwick told his staff Tuesday and informed his athletes today.
“Bottom line ... (East Texas Charter School Superintendent) Terry Lapic contacted me and told me one of their guys was retiring,” Chadwick said of his decision. “It’s a big opportunity for me to be in a classroom beside my dad. It was just something I couldn’t turn down.”
Chadwick’s dad, Dan Chadwick, is a teacher and assistant golf coach at East Texas Charter.
Chadwick was hired at Spring Hill almost a year ago (April 20, 2012) after leading Ore City to a 20-21 record in four seasons. In 2011, he led Ore City to that school’s first playoff berth since 1995.
East Texas Charter School competes in track, cross country, tennis and golf.
“There is no talk of expansion in the immediate future. They are content with the lifetime sports,” Chadwick said.
Chadwick's last day at Spring Hill will be June 30, and he is scheduled to start duties at East Texas Charter on Aug. 1.
Chadwick’s departure from Spring Hill was first reported on Smoaky.com.
