Wade resigns as BGHS football coach


Bowling Green High School’s varsity football coach has resigned, citing personal reasons.

The need for a varsity football coach has been posted on the Bowling Green City Schools job board.

Superintendent Ted Haselman said Sunday that Josh Wade had resigned for personal reasons.

Athletic Director Michele Wolf said Wade was continuing teaching social studies at the high school.

Wade could not be reached for comment.

He was suspended from football activities for the last weekend of October for actions that did not align with the district’s high standards, according to an email Haselman sent to parents. At no time was a student-athlete in any danger due to the behavior, he wrote.

Wade’s actions were not disclosed due to confidentiality, and he continued teaching as assigned.

Wade was hired by BGCS in February 2021. It was his first job as a head football coach.

He had been an assistant football coach and head high school boys track coach since 2017 at Quitman High School in Texas and had served as interim athletic director for two months in late 2020.

He started at Quitman in 2014 and was the previous defensive coordinator for the football team and coached junior high basketball and was assistant high school track coach.

He served as volunteer football coach at New Richmond (Ohio) High School in 2012-13 and football defensive coordinator from 2013-2014.
