Mike McCauley confirmed as athletics director at Orange High School

Mike McCauley has been appointed as the new director of athletics at Orange High School. His confirmation last week by the school board came shortly after the retirement of Earnie Price, who served almost 30 years in the district system.

McCauley previously has worked at Orange as an assistant athletics director, on the staff of football head coach Pat Moser, and as a teacher in the exceptional children’s department, according to district officials.

“In my four years here at Orange, I’ve had a chance to watch Coach Price establish a process to grow the athletic program and set-up a system of success for all sports,” McCauley said in a prepared statement issued by the school. “I want to keep that process moving in the right direction.”

Before coming to Orange High School in 2013, McCauley was the athletics director at Southern Lee High School. He worked for eight seasons at Graham High School, 2004-2011, where he followed Moser as the head football coach.
