After two seasons coaching football at Central Dauphin East High School, George Chaump will not return to coach the Panthers next season.
All coaches and junior coaches at CD East are hired on a year-to-year basis. The school board did not renew Chaump's contract for the upcoming year.
Athletic Director Greg Goldthorp said the decision was made in the best interest of school.
“We truly appreciate all of Coach Chaump's accomplishment,” Goldthorp said in a statement. “We wish George Chaump the very best.”
Chaump led CD East to its second post-season berth in school history last year. They finished with a 3-7 record this season, but ended the year on high note, beating their rival Central Dauphin.
Chaump has been coaching for more than 50 years. The school district has started searching for its next coach.
