PANAMA CITY BEACH — Arnold held a coaches meeting on Monday with a lot of new faces.

Also fresh Athletic Director Rick Green hopes to see them again next year.

Green formally introduced four head coaches to solidify the department, which has seen much turnover through the years. Green is aware of the turnover having been at Arnold for seven years as softball coach. His appointment as AD makes him the fourth to hold the position in the school's history and each of those have held the spot at some point since 2012.

"We want to break the every year cycle. He's on a 10-year contract," Arnold Principal Keith Bland joked.

Kidding aside, Green said it will be important to have someone in the position for a prolonged period. At 58, he said he's at least five years away from retirement from the school system and he doesn't plan on stepping away before then.

"I thought long and hard about it and I know how demanding it is," Green said. "We need some stability. I'll be here until I retire. That's my goal."

New coaches took over the baseball, girls basketball, girls weightlifting and volleyball programs. Shuffling also occurred at some assistant slots, including one involving Green.
