HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS: Marysville’s football coach Gafford resigns after budget cuts effect his contract

The Marysville, Ohio school district  is like several around the country, cutting its budget, eliminating supplemental contracts because of deficits and failed school levies.

That was the main reason 5-year head football coach Jeff Gafford resigned his position back in late December of 2011.

Prior to the the 2011 football season, Gafford was told by administrators that his 20-day extended time contract was not going to be renewed.

In addition to his teaching contract with Marysville, Gafford was receiving supplemental contracts as the weight room coordinator, head football coach and the 20-day extended time for summer football activities. With the budget cuts, he was going to lose $7,000 or nine percent of his salary.

In his five-year stint as the Monarchs head coach, Gafford had a record of 26-25.

Before coaching at Marysville, he was at Worthington Kilbourne.
