According to the school he is first former Cherokee player to rise the ranks to AD. Coach Dye spent years as a middle school and youth sports coach. When he finally got the call to lead his alma mater…It was a truly an honor.
Oh man it was a weight of my chest. We have been waiting for so long and I knew it was a blessing and I was just waiting for them to call my name. I hear it was a lot of good candidates that ran for the position. Can’t discredit them at all. I mean I’m just blessed the opportunity and I won’t let them down. The best part of this is that I’m back home. I’m glad to be here.Andre Dye, Kendrick AD/Boys Basketball Coach
