Columbia Public Schools Athletic Director set to retire

After 22 years with athletics at Columbia Public Schools, CPS Director of Athletics Bruce Whitesides tells ABC 17 he will retire.

Whitesides said, "I couldn't be more happy. Who else gets to watch games and get paid for it you know?"

Rock Bridge Athletic Director David Egan is set to take over the position following the end of the school year.

"He brings a very balanced attitude about things. He's grown up and embraced positive coaching. I'm very pleased with how David does his job," Whitesides said.

Egan has 16 years of teaching, coaching and administrative experience and is currently working toward his doctorate in education at William Woods University.
