(5-16-19) The New Bremen Schools Board of Education made two new significant athletic department hiring announcements last night.
Cory Stephens was named last night as the new boys head basketball coach replacing Brad Francis whose contract was not renewed in April. This will be Stephens first head coaching position, he has coached the Cardinals’ freshman program, is a 6th grade Math teacher and is a Bath graduate. Last year the Cardinals went 8-15 overall and 2-7 in the MAC.
Chad Wells was named the new athletic director and will be replacing retiring AD Gary Jones, he was also hired as the Ticket Manager during the meeting.
This will not be the first time Wells has been an AD, he held that position in the past at nearby Ft. Loramie.
Wells currently is the K-6 Technology teacher at New Bremen Elementary and the head varsity baseball coach at New Bremen Local Schools.
Wells will be working with Jones during the 2019-2020 school year for transitional purposes and will continue in his teaching responsibilities and would be head administrator when the top administration is out of the building.
