At a special meeting of the school board on Tuesday morning ( March 26, 2019 ) at Shiner ISD Administration Building, current Shiner head baseball coach Daniel Boedeker was named Athletic Director and head football coach starting with the 2019-2020 school year.
He will replace longtime athletic director Steven Cerny who will be retiring at the end of the current school year.
Superintendent Trey Lawrence recommended Boedeker for the position.
Board president Andrew Schacherl made a motion to accept Lawrence’s recommendation for Boedeker as athletic director/head football. Board member Brandon Siegel seconded the motion and the motion passed unanimously 6-0.
Boedeker, who also has served as assistant football coach, graduated from Shiner and has been teaching and coaching for the district since 2000 and looks forward to the challenge of leading Shiner athletics to continued success.
“It is an exciting time for me,” he said. “Coach Cerny has been here for a long time and has taught me a whole lot. He will definitely be tough to replace. He has had a big part in preparing me for this and I want to thank him for that.”
“I appreciate the board having confidence in me to take over the athletic program.”
With a long tenure of serving underneath Cerny, Boedeker does not expect a lot to change once he offi cially takes over.
“Our goals will stay the same; the expectations will stay the same,” he said. “I have been here for a long time and we have great kids here at Shiner.”
For Lawrence, Boedeker had been the frontrunner for the job.
“It was an obvious choice,” Lawrence said. “Coach Boedeker has earned it. He is greatly expected within his field. I could not have gone with anybody else; Coach Boedeker is our guy.”
