COKATO – Longtime DC teacher and coach Todd Goudy has been hired as the new boys varsity golf coach, Activities Director Perry Thinesen announced.
Goudy will be replacing 20-year veteran Brian Johnson, who announced his retirement earlier this year due to health concerns.
Goudy has an extensive coaching career at DC. He has been a football coach all 13 years of his tenure at DC, starting with six years at the junior high level, two years as the ninth grade coach, and for the last five years he has been the JV football coach.
He has also coached 10 years in the basketball programs, including seven years in the boys program, and three years in the girls.
It was not an easy decision for Brian Johnson to turn over the reigns for the boys golf program.
Johnson started his coaching career at DC as the middle school coach for two years from 1998-99, spent one year as the girls varsity coach in 2000, and for the last 20 years has been the boys varsity coach.
During his tenure, eight of his golfers have made the state tournament (one girl and seven boys).
