Search For New Athletic Director/Dean Starts Monday


Interviews of candidates for the new athletic director/dean position at Payson High School begin Monday, June 11, in front of a specially selected committee.

However, a time line has not been set as to when the person will be selected and begin duties.

First year PHS principal Anna Van Zile says there has been no shortage of interest in the job, “At this point there has been almost a dozen people express an interest in the position, with a pretty even number of in-district and out-of-district applicants.”

On the coaching front, the school board is expected to act on hiring baseball and football applicants at its June 18 meeting.

Indications are Graham Ellison will be recommended to take over as football coach and Brian Young will become the new baseball coach.

Ellison replaces Byron Quinlan and Young takes over for Scott Novack.

Both Quinlan and Young resigned weeks ago.
