Ed Dalton has accepted the job as Trinity Area School District’s varsity football coach and weightlifting coach, Superintendent Paul Kasunich said after Thursday’s school board meeting.
After more than a year of contentious board meetings about whether to keep Dalton as football coach and athletic director, the board voted two weeks ago to hire him back as coach as long as outstanding issues were resolved.
Kasunich said the grievance filed by the teachers union about Dalton’s ouster as football coach resolved itself because he was offered the coaching position again. The board chose not to stipulate that Dalton drop his lawsuit against the district over the decision not to renew his contract as athletic director, Kasunich said.
