O達oyle served five years as Activities Director for the Gering schools. Prior to that, he taught physical education for four years and was the football coach, a position he kept when he left the classroom for the activities director position.
It was late January when O達oyle was named 2011 District Athletic Director of the Year for District 6 by the Nebraska State Interscholastic Administrators Association.

Hague said the position will usually remain open for two to three weeks. After that, senior high principal Eldon Hubbard and junior high principal Dora Olivares will screen the candidates and set up interviews. The superintendent is involved in the interview process as well.
鄭fter interviewing candidates, we make a recommendation to the board, Hague said. 的t痴 a similar process as we do with teaching positions.
