TRUSSVILLE — Trussville City Schools is searching for a new varsity boys head basketball coach.
Mike Dutton submitted his resignation today and he informed his team of the coaching change during fourth period.
In a meeting with Trussville City Schools Superintendent Pattie Neill, Dutton discussed his blessings of family and a new granddaughter born last Thursday among reasons for his departure as head coach. He added that he has always loved the game and would like to continue to assist in area basketball programs.
“I have utmost respect for the career that Mike Dutton has had in basketball and for the decision that he has made,” Neill said. “I wish him the best of luck in this new chapter of his life.”
Neill, Hewitt-Trussville High School Principal Tim Salem and Athletics Director Karen Johns will embark on an immediate search for a new head basketball coach for the boys varsity program.
Letters of interest in this coaching position may be sent to Sandra.Vernon@trussvillecityschools.com.
Jeremiah Millington on Monday was approved by the Trussville City Board of Education as an assistant coach for the varsity boys, replacing Bobby Johns.
