Greece, N.Y. - Greece Athena High School has a new Boys Varsity Soccer coach. Interim coach Mike Butler is expected to be named the permanent replacement for Bill Heuber at a board meeting later this month.
Heuber was removed after 12 years as head coach in a pair of controversial votes by the Greece Central School District Board of Education. After the first vote failed to renew his contract a special meeting was called for a revote, but the results were the same.
Butler is a phys-ed teacher at Athena Middle School and has coached girls basketball and soccer, including a pair of Section V titles for girls soccer teams in 2004 and 2006. His basketball teams have won six sectional titles.
