Dalton was hired as Trinity's athletic director and football coach before the start of the 1999-2000 school year. He was removed as the school district's athletic director two years ago, but remained as football coach following a move to the classroom. Dalton had his football position opened twice, only to have the school board rescind its decision on both occasions.
Dalton will be McGuffey's first full-time athletic director since Mike Malesic retired at the end of last year. Tom Bedillion was a part-time athletic director.
Derek Bochna had been the Highlanders' football coach. His position was opened two months ago.
