By Gary Lloyd
JEFFERSON COUNTY — Former Clay-Chalkville High School varsity boys basketball coach Daniel Foy is now a social studies teacher.
The Jefferson County Board of Education last Thursday approved Foy as a social studies teacher at North Jefferson Middle School in Kimberly. Foy was also an English teacher at Clay-Chalkville High School.
Foy resigned from the basketball coach position in March. He totaled a 66-27 record in his three seasons as the Cougars coach. Foy said at the time that he grew as a teacher and coach at Clay-Chalkville.
“I really enjoyed my time here,” Foy said in March.
Last season, Clay-Chalkville posted a 22-10 record, falling 65-48 at Lee-Huntsville in the sub-regional round of the Class 6A state playoffs.
During the 2012-2013 season, the Cougars posted a 24-7 record and reached the Class 6A Northeast Regional semifinals at Jacksonville State, its third trip to the regional tournament in school history. The Cougars lost to eventual state champion Mountain Brook 47-44. In Foy’s first season in 2011-2012, Clay-Chalkville went 20-10.
Former Faulkner University men’s basketball assistant coach Jeremy Monceaux was hired in June to coach the team.
