New coach for Kennedy

Damian Mackey, the first-year football coach of John F. Kennedy-Fremont, is leaving the high school to take an administrative position and will not be the head coach of the Titans next season, he said Thursday.
“I had a lot of conversations with Mr. (Thomas) Hanson (Kennedy’s principal) at Kennedy. We both came to the conclusion that if I was going in this direction, this would be the best way to go,” Mackey said.
Mackey, who taught geometry at Kennedy, is now an administrator at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School in Hayward. He said he will be a volunteer coach for the Titans next season.
Kennedy athletic director John Webb said longtime assistant Dave Damewood is the interim head coach.
The Titans had a 2011 record of 2-8 overall and 2-4 in MVAL play. Mackey was the second head varsity football coach in Kennedy’s history. Pete Michaletos coached for 46 seasons before retiring after the 2010 season.
