- Monday night could prove to be a big night for the Rhinelander Girls Basketball team. No they were not playing. The Hodags have a new head coach.Rhinelander Athletic Director Charlie LeHam was searching for a new coach. Last month, Mark Jacobson stepped down after one season.LeHam recommended former Northland Pines boys coach Ryan Clark. The recommendation was given to the school board. The board met in a closed door session. That is standard with the district. Clark was also recommended for a teaching position in the district. After the closed door session, the votes were made. The board unanimously approved Clark for both positions.
Clark coached for 8 seasons at Northland Pines. After getting reinstated for one season, Clark decided to step down back in March.He said it was a family decision. We'll have more on the Clark hiring tonight on Newswatch 12 at 6pm.
