Dalton High School is looking for a new leader of its girls basketball program.

Brad Beck has been relieved of his head coaching duties but will remain a teacher at the school, he told the Daily Citizen-News on Wednesday.

“We’re just trying to do what’s best for our girls,” Dalton athletics director Jeff McKinney said when reached Thursday.

Beck led the Catamounts for two seasons, finishing with a record of 22-33. In the 2018-2019, Beck guided the team to an appearance in the Class 6A state playoffs and a 16-14 record. This past season, his team went 6-19.

“Always tough when you have to inform your team the journey together is over,” Beck posted on his Twitter account Wednesday. “Get your popcorn ready because they are going to be must-see for a long time to come!”

Beck was tabbed as Dalton’s head coach in 2018 after former head coach Jim Case resigned. Beck was an assistant coach for Dalton High in 2014 and 2015 prior to receiving the head coaching job.

McKinney said that the search for a new coach is underway.

“We are actively searching for a coach right now and hope to have someone in place as soon as possible,” McKinney said. “It’s still early, so nothing has been decided yet.”
