Madison Metropolitan School District has posted a vacancy for a soccer head coach at Madison West High School. This means that Brad Murphy has been dismissed as a regent coach.
Murphy was the head coach of the West Madison club team. This is a school district’s independent program, with a fourth and final match in Milton on Friday. His work as a club team coach may violate WIAA’s contact rules.
Murphy was hired in 2016 and was 21-20 years old in four western seasons, excluding club team records.
At the beginning of the season, Murphy said the MMSD manager could be dismissed as a coach if he proceeded with the club’s team planning. The team consisted primarily of Western students, but gathered from each of the four public high schools in the city, all opposed to schools outside the county and found an opponent who ended up with a four-match schedule. .. it was.
Madison’s four public high schools were the only schools in the region who chose not to participate in the regular high school football season of fall 2020 or the seven-week alternative fall season ending this weekend.
In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Murphy had a hard time attending an immediate meeting, including an informal soccer match at school on April 5, 2020. The meeting clearly violated state “safer home” orders and school rules. He received a warning letter from Madison Law Offices, but the school district later said the problem had been resolved.
MMSD spokesman Timothy LeMonds said Tuesday that the district could not comment on personnel issues.
