Walls, who will also step down from his position as co-head coach of the high school wrestling team, cited time constraints as his reason for resigning.
“It was supposed to be part-time, and it was taking up more time than I wanted to spend,” said Walls, who had retired after several years at Union County High School. “It was nothing against anybody. Everybody treated me right.”
Walls was named to the position, which was expanded to include athletic programs for the entire district, on Aug. 30, after Jim Perrin resigned as the high school’s athletic director this summer.
Superintendent Travis Hamby said the opening will be posted as soon as possible, adding he hopes to have it filled during Christmas break.
