Chad Ganden will not be back next season as the boys swimming coach at Waubonsie Valley, The Heat Index has learned.
Whether or not Ganden will remain as the boys water polo coach has yet to be decided. The Warriors lost to Naperville Central on Friday night in the semifinals of the Neuqua Valley Sectional.
Email queries sent to Waubonsie athletic director Mike Rogowski have not been replied to as of this posting.
Waubonsie's boys swimming head coach position was posted on the job board on the District 204 website on Thursday. Ganden told The Heat Index that he has accepted a teaching position at a Joliet elementary school.
"I needed a teaching job," Ganden said. "There weren't any available at Waubonsie."
He said he can't teach in Joliet and coach the Warriors because Waubonsie's afternoon practice starts before his new school's last bell.
"I became a teacher so I could coach," Ganden said. "But if I can't teach, I cant coach."
