I’ve been down the the flu all week, and apparently I’ve missed a lot of stuff. But thanks to modern technology, I can get you this info from my sickbed. Here’s a portion of the press release sent out by New Albany today on new football coach Ron Price. Not sure why Pete Cordelli backed out of the job, or if he even officially accepted it.
The New Albany School Board approved Ron Price as head football coach at New Albany High School. Price has coached in New Albany for five years, serving as head coach at New Albany Middle School from 2002-2005, defensive backs coach at New Albany High School in 2006, and ninth grade head coach in 2007. Prior to moving to New Albany, Price was the wide receivers coach at Cleveland High School.
New Albany High School Principal Jay Foster believes the New Albany School District took at great step forward in hiring Coach Price.
“Ron is a person of integrity, character, and great work ethic,” said Foster. “I believe Ron’s relationship with and devotion to the student athletes of New Albany will allow him to be very successful.”
Price begins work immediately as head coach. He is meeting with coaches and players at New Albany High School today. He is excited about the opportunity and optimistic about the future of the football program.
“We have outstanding assistant coaches in this program that I look forward to working with more closely,” said Price. “I am honored to follow in the footsteps of Rickey Bates and Bubba Davis. We have built a strong foundation and I am excited to get started. “
