High Schools: Caroline AD won’t return

Caroline High School is seeking its fourth athletic director in the past six years.

Jeremy Jack has submitted his resignation as the Cavaliers’ athletic director after one year on the job, Caroline County Public Schools Assistant Superintendent Eric Cunningham said.

Jack took over after Dan Dickey stepped down in 2011.

He was previously the head football coach and athletic director at Colonial Beach High School.

Jack’s resignation comes two months after the Cavaliers hired new football coach Jeremiah Ross. Jack initially applied to become the football coach at Caroline, but said in April he withdrew his application for personal reasons.

“We’re sad to see Mr. Jack go,” Caroline Superintendent Greg Killough said. “I enjoyed getting to know him while he was here for the year. He worked hard for the children of Caroline County.”

Killough said the administration will move as quickly as possible to find Jack’s replacement. Jack’s resignation is the latest change for the school system.

Cunningham has resigned to take a similar position in North Carolina, effective June 30. Former Principal Harper Donahoe stepped down in February.

Interim principal Richard “Soup” Griffin closed out the school-year. Killough said newly hired full-time principal Charles Stevens will play a role in hiring a new athletic director.

“Of course it makes it difficult,” Killough said of the many changes. “But I believe we can work through it and make it a positive situation. Any time you sustain those kinds of changes, it creates a little discontinuity.”
