NEW BERLIN – Citing his desire to coach football again, Unadilla Valley School Board Vice-President Stanley Foulds is relinquishing his seat on the board to become the new head varsity football coach.
Foulds, who has served on the board for over a decade, has 30 years of coaching experience on the Pop Warner level. When the head football job was posted in January of this year, Foulds made the decision to apply knowing that if he was hired, he would have to cede his position on the school board. “It was a really huge choice and a tough decision,” Foulds said of his choice to resign. “I think what it came down to is that I really missed coaching football. I’ve been out of it for two years, and I’m excited to get back into it. I think I can do a lot of great things.”
Foulds said he offered his assistance to the UV football program as a volunteer the past few years, and he was a volunteer assistant coach approximately a decade ago under former coach Frank Johnson. He was one of many applicants for the job, and after the interview process was completed by Unadilla Valley superintendent Robert Mackey, Foulds received Mackey’s recommendation to the district’s board of education.
