Vicars returning to coach Delta


After seven years away, highly successful football coach Mike Vicars will return to the school system where he made one of his biggest impacts.

Vicars, 49, will return to Delta for the 2013-14 school year, having been hired as a middle school principal in the Pike-Delta-York system as well as high school’s head football coach.

The Delta board of education is expected to approve his hiring on Wednesday.

The move comes four weeks after Vicars announced he would not be accepting similar positions with Oregon schools, where he was to serve as a junior high assistant principal and the head football coach at Clay High School.

Vicars is currently finishing up a six-year administrative and coaching stint at Genoa. He had made a verbal commitment to Oregon, where he currently resides, but never signed a contact with the system.
