Corr coaching family leaving Darton

July 14, 2005

Albany - The Darton College athletic family is saying goodbye to the Corr family.

Cavaliers assistant baseball coach Jamie Corr has resigned to become head coach at South Forsyth High School north of Atlanta.

Jamie's wife Dana is also stepping down as the Lady Cavaliers head softball coach.

Jamie Corr is returning to the high school head coaching ranks for family reasons.

His wife Dana is from DeKalb County and they will be closer to her family.

Jamie Corr was the head baseball coach at Riverview High in Tampa when he left that job to follow wife Dana to Darton three years ago.

Working for Darton head coach Glenn Eames, Jamie Corr had several duties for the Cavalier team with his main focus on recruiting as the Cavaliers posted their best season in their ten year history of the program with 34 wins.

Dana Corr took over a Darton softball program that was entering its second season of fast pitch competition four years ago.

After winning just ten games her first season, the Lady Cavaliers won 87 games the next three years and Corr is leaving the program in very good shape with eight returning players who will be joined by a strong freshman class.

Dana Corr, who was a finalist for the head coaching job at Valdosta State, is planning to take the next year off to spend with her son two year old son Jackson.

Darton athletic director Todd Davis hopes to fill both positions as soon as possible.
