It was brought to my attention that a successful softball coach applied for the job and was turned away. This man, Garry Rodenberger, I feel is being punished for the Title 9 suit that was filed several years ago. Being a former female athlete I can def. say it was beyond needed. Sharing a locker room with male athletes was not fun. It was said they wanted to hire a person who taught at the HS. hmmm do all coaches teach there? I know the AD"s daughter, who is head coach for volleyball, does not teach there? Excuse and BS is what the answer is. Garry has taken his current team to regionals, I believe 3 times in the first four years he has coached there. He would a great snag and very knowledgeable to the game for Defiance to have. Maybe even turn the program back to a winning tradition and one where girls don't quit left and right. People need to voice their concerns and talk to the board members if they want him back. Also, didn't coach Dales have to leave because Admin. positions couldn't also coach? Conflict of interest? Isn't the AD job and Admin position?? hmmmm
