Eau Claire North football and track and field coach John Phelps is leaving Huskie land after 26 years of service.
Phelps is taking the head principal position at Winona, Minnesota High School.
According to North Athletic Director Dave Turner, this was one of the most difficult decisions Phelps has ever had to make in his professional career.
Turner says the the Huskies will hire an interim football coach for the upcoming 2007 season and then put together a full search for a year from now. He added that an internal hire is a likely possibility.
