One of the most successful coaches in school history has left Winona Christian School.

Athletic director and head coach Joe Boyette is no longer at the school, and the search for the next football coach is underway.

"Honestly, it was a matter of policy issues," headmaster Cameron Wright said. "It was a matter we couldn't get resolved. He felt he couldn't work under those conditions."

Boyette, who was in his sixth season as head coach for boys football, baseball and basketball, was highly successful, getting as far as the North half title games in each of the three sports. His closest to a championship came in 2011 when he led to the Stars to the Class A title series against Trinity.

WCS girls coach Durward Stanton has taken over as the boys' team coach, and according to Cameron Wright, Shannon Self will coach the baseball team this season, and coaches Leroy Castille and Dowell Green will serve as assistants. The first game for the baseball team is February 24.

Wright will serve as the WCS athletic director, and he said the search for the next head football coach has begun.

"We hope we can have someone in place by Spring Break," Wright said. "We've already placed the job listing on the MAIS website."
