As an asst. athletic admin and coach of "olympic" sports (but someone who played HS football in Ohio) I can say Kenton was a prime case study on why you should not pair AD with football nor any other sport for that matter.

a.) Being a HFC alone takes up a good bit of time as far as planning in season and maintenance out of season. Being a HFC in the modern era is literally a year long position. Not advocating for HFC to be paid beyond a supplemental pay situation but just saying the time commitment to this endeavor is crazy. No other HS sport has a 100 plus student athletes and multiple asst's to CEO over.

b.) the above means that being a supervisor of the entire athletic department means you're never going to be able to properly give the appropriate amount of commitment to the other sports under your guidance. I'm an assistant AD at my school in charge of spring sports and coach swimming during the fall and wrestling in the winter. Suffice it to say the last couple years being an ASSISTANT athletic admin has taken me away from MY sports. And these are sports that don't have the same parameters as high school football. Even by a long shot.


Thankfully there has been an on-going trend across the US to separate HFC from AD. Schools and school districts are beginning to treat the AD position as more of the admin position that it is and requiring the appropriate credentials to become one and pay them as such. AD use to be the bargaining chip BOE's used to lure top HFC talent. Now the AD position is off the table and the AAD position has become to new bargaining tool to persuade HFCs. Even at smaller schools across the US this is happening. RARELY, I mean RARELY (except in pockets of the south) do I see AD / HFC or HFC / AD postings.

Mike Mauk is a good man that did a lot for Kenton athletics. For people to suggest he held back other programs is beyond inaccurate. Kenton has experienced one of the best classes of girls in the history of the school go through the last few years. In boys soccer everyone knew the current group would have success with the staff working in the lower grades due to their kids being involved. Radio Dave has zero knowledge about anything

Mike Mauk was scum. He cared about winning games and little else. And win he did. Being soulless made it somewhat easier.

I wonder why yappi lets Dave back again after he has banned him three times or more. All he does is spam the board and crusade against Mauk.
