Daphne High School football coach and athletic director Glenn Vickery announced his retirement Monday following a Baldwin County Board of Education human resources review, the results of which have not been released.
Vickery was placed on paid administrative leave last week, according to a statement from Baldwin County Schools Superintendent Eddie Tyler on Saturday, citing a Baldwin County Board of Education human resources department review related to “board policies and procedures.”
Today, the school system says the details of Vickery’s human resource reviews are not available because of his “due process rights that are still current.”
Vickery released the following statement Monday afternoon announcing his retirement:
“I would like to thank the Baldwin County School System for the opportunities they have provided our family for 15 years. I have worked for three wonderful principals, Mr Barry Pennington, Mr. Don Blanchard, and Dr Meredith Foster. I have had the pleasure of working side by side with some of the best educators in the country. I will truly be indebted to all the coaches. players, and staff that I have had the honor and privilege to work with at Daphne High School. Effective today I am retiring from the Baldwin County Public School System. Nancy and I have discussed and prayed about retirement for about a year and we feel like this is the right time. Daphne High School will always have a special place in our heart and we wish them the best as they move forward.”
No further information has been released by the Baldwin County school system at this time.
Vickery was the head football at Daphne since 2004 and won the state championship in 2010. He was previously a football coach at Davidson High School and Mobile Christian.
