GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The past seven seasons Dillon Maney made Luxmeburg-Casco a football team to always look out for, but recently Maney announced he stepped down to take a teaching and assistant coaching position at Bay Port.

"When the job at the Bay Port opened up, there were some people who teach in the district that thought I would be a good fit," said Maney, a physical education teacher at L-C. "So, from a professional standpoint I thought I needed to apply and see how things turned out. After interviewing and meeting new people within the district, it felt like home.

"The administration was awesome and made me feel really good about the position."

In seven seasons, Maney led the Spartans to a 47-27 record, including two trips to Level 3 of the playoffs. His best season was 2016 when L-C went 11-1 and won the North Eastern Conference before falling to Notre Dame in the postseason.

Ironicially, 2019 was Maney's only losing season with the Spartans as last year they went 3-6 and missed the playoffs for the only time under Maney.

Maney doesn't know what position he will be coaching at Bay Port and added leaving Luxmeburg-Casco is not easy.

"The decision was still very difficult to leave a great school district and all the people that I really enjoyed working for and with in Luxemburg-Casco," he said. "After much prayer and talking with my family I felt it was the right choice for me professionally and for my family to make the move. We are looking forward to being a part of the Howard-Suamico School District."

Bay Port is scheduled to open its season Aug. 20 when it hosts Middleton.
