Former MU softball coach to head JCPS Athletics
JEFFERSON CITY —
Jefferson City Public Schools announced Ehren Earleywine as its new Director of Athletics Tuesday.
Earleywine previously coached the University of Missouri Softball Team for 11 seasons. In January, MU Athletic Director Jim Sterk announced Earleywine's termination as the team's coach. JCPS officials said Earleywine will begin his new role July 1, 2018.
“We are pleased to welcome Coach Earleywine home to the JCPS family,” said Gary Verslues, assistant superintendent of secondary education for JCPS. “Ehren brings a wealth of experience as a collegiate coach, a parent, an athlete and a former Jaybird. He has many professional connections at the regional, state and national levels that will be extremely beneficial to our district."
Earleywine said he looks forward to working with the JCPS team of administrators, directors and coaches. "For me personally, it’s a beautiful thing that my career and my passion come together in the city and at the school I love most."
