Ernie Maesch and LuAnne Anderson were hired as varsity boys and girls basketball coaches, respectively, as well as for physical education positions within the corporation.
The teaching positions being filled by Maesch and Anderson are yet to be determined, but one will most likely replace Anita Miller at North Clay Middle School. Personnel director Carolyn Kumpf said placement would be determined by seniority.
Maesch joins Northview from Shakamak High School, but he is no stranger to the Knights.
Maesch played for, graduated from and coached at Northview. Since joining the Lakers in the 2002-03 school year, he has led them to a 78-43 record.
Shakamak has not had a losing season under Maesch, and advanced to the Class1A semistate in the 2005-06 season.
This past season, the Lakers were 19-6 and won their sectional before falling to Indianapolis Lutheran in the first round of regionals.
LuAnne Anderson is also familiar with Northview. She spent this past season as an assistant to Chad Smith on the Knights' bench and coached JV volleyball.
Previously, Anderson coached Clay City's girls' team, including a 9-13 overall record in 2006-07.
The Eels won their first sectional game that year, but fell to North Central (Farmersburg) in the second round.
Anderson also was an assistant coach for the Clay City volleyball team in 2006.
Neither coach was present at the meeting.
The board approved both hires unanimously. Len Fischer and Ted Jackson were not present.
The next regular school board meeting will be May 15, at 7:30 p.m., in the Media Center of North Clay Middle School.
