'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Clairton City School District officials are looking for a new athletic director.

School directors unanimously accepted Peter Mathis' resignation at Tuesday night's meeting.

Mathis, a former teacher and coach from the Virginia suburbs of Washington, replaced James Wessel, who resigned in March.

Wessel succeeded Anthony Ferrare, who resigned in April 2011.

Mathis stepped down to spend more time working on his doctorate, board president Richard Livingston said.

The position will be posted on the district's website. Officials hope they can promote from within.

The board approved football coaches for the 2013-14 season: Tom Nola, head coach; Wayne Wade, defensive coordinator; Tim Bukowski, varsity second assistant; Marc Gambino, varsity third assistant; Remondo Williams, junior varsity head coach; Eric Fusco, junior varsity assistant coach; Lance Cash, high school assistant and seventh- and eighth-grade assistant pending receipt of clearances; Matt Geletko, seventh- and eighth-grade head coach; and Jim Dumm, volunteer coach.

The board approved a contract with TNT Sports Training LLC for Tammy Ridgley to be a trainer.

Charles Shealey was named varsity/junior varsity girls basketball head coach and Leigha Ogletree as assistant coach. Ogletree was approved as seventh- and eighth-grade girls basketball coach.

Geletko was named varsity/junior varsity boys basketball head coach and Remondo Williams as assistant coach. Terrell Armstrong was named seventh- and eighth-grade boys basketball coach.

Ken Barna and Ray Glover were approved as videographers for the 2013-14 football season. Jeff Kimball was named manager for the football season.

Other football staff include Wessel as announcer, James McCorkle as statistician, Rob Nystrom as clock operator, and Geletko as scout.

The board approved a $120 pay rate per game for police officers at home football games.

The board accepted a proposal from State Security & Investigation Services Inc. to provide district security for three years starting Monday at an annual cost of $120,528.

School directors gave the robot Mega Nuke to recent high school graduate Garrett Santoline, who built the robot as part of the district's team and competed in BotsIQ contests.
