BELOIT - Since taking over as athletic director at Beloit Memorial High School, Joel Beard has had more than his share of vacancies in his head coaching ranks.
Another cropped up earlier this week when Dave Soddy suddenly resigned as head coach of the Rock County Fury girls hockey team as well as assistant on the girls varsity volleyball team.
"Because of family priorities and personal schedule, I made the decision with my family to not coach this year," Soddy said Wednesday. "It's a great group of student-athletes."
Beard said the job will be posted immediately in hopes of finding a suitable replacement.
