MSD welcomes new head coaches for the upcoming sports seasons

I have been coaching for 26 years and I’ve played in college for 4 years. I’ve been playing football since I was five years old. I’m just excited about seeing our kids grow and get better and take what they learn on the football field to their everyday lives. Our goals are just to keep getting better and just keep working hard and coaching them harder to reach their goals.

— Varsity Football Coach Keith Hindsley

I feel really good about the potential the team has to be successful this year and I am really working on putting together a program that we can build on moving forward. The reason I am very encouraged about the program is we have a lot of young players with a lot of talent and drive to get better so the opportunity is there for me to be able to build a program the way I feel will be the most successful.

— Women's Golf Coach Jonathan Smith

When I first started coaching, it was after coach Jim Roper had retired. I got into coaching and we had a pretty good run for seven years. We went to districts where we won regionals a few times so we had a pretty good run for those seven years. And so you know, the time is right, the opening was there. And I just felt like I wanted to come back and you know, continue, what kind of started almost 15 years ago.

— Men's Golf Coach Darren Levine

I’ve been coaching for a few years now, but never at a school. I wanted the opportunity to be able to coach every day since club teams only practice a few times a week. My goal for the team this year is to make it to states… it’s definitely attainable. I want to create a long-lasting culture at this program of hard work and dedication. As long as we work hard and come together as a team to fight for a common goal, the sky’s the limit for us.

— Men's and Women's Volleyball Coach Aidan Gidon

I have been the head coach of Ramblewood Middle School… I was also the head coach of Everglades High School… and went to regionals. Last year… I served as assistant coach to Douglas’ Head Coach Teddy Lyons. Lyons decided to step down and asked me to assume the head coaching position… the goal for this season is to return to the district championship for a rematch against the defending district champs of Deerfield High School.

— Head Basketball Coach Shaune Cannon
