The Mount Ida School Board turned to a familiar face to fill the vacant head football coach’s position, but will now need to fill an administrative position this summer.
The January board meeting began with recognition of the time and work current board members have given in service to the district.
They quickly moved into executive session and after 30 minutes of discussion they returned to regular session. In their first order of business they accepted Emily Wuichet’s resignation as business teacher.
Board President Jeremy McCullough then stated that Mike White had tendered his resignation as superintendent effective June 30, 2022. The board voted unanimously to accept his resignation.
The next order of business saw the board hire White to fill the head football coach’s position for the upcoming school year.
White returns to a position that he held for 14 years at Mount Ida. During that time he led the Lions to a 125-46 record, winning seven conference titles while playing in the either the 5-2A Conference or the 7-2A Conference. Under his leadership the Lions played in three state championships, winning it all in 2007 and 2016.
White filled in as head coach in 2020 when the coaching staff was quarantined under COVID-19 protocol, winning both games he coached.
He stepped into the roll in 2021 when then head coach Zack Wuichet resigned in the middle of the season. As interim coach White amassed a 4-1 record and a trip to the second round of the 2A State Playoffs.
