Lenoir City High School is seeking a new softball coach after firing Dominic Petrozzello on Monday.
A post on the official bulletin board for the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association listed the positions of softball and bowling coach as openings at the school.
Petrozzello confirmed Tuesday night that he had been removed from the position of softball coach but would remain on staff as wellness teacher and assistant football coach under Mike Zeller.
He declined to comment further on his dismissal from the softball coaching position.
Lenoir City won the TSSAA Class AA softball state championship under the coaching of Petrozzello in 2004, finishing 33-8 that season.
The Lady Panthers were knocked out of the region tournament the following season by Alcoa and have not put together a winning season since. They have just two postseason wins since moving to the AAA classification.
LCHS Athletic Director Greg Boling did not return a request for comment Tuesday regarding the dismissal of Petrozzello.
Petrozzello was the only coach currently on staff at the school to have won a team state championship.
The position of bowling coach was previously held by Phillips Holloway, who filled the position without a coaching stipend when approached by a student with interest in starting a team. Last season was the bowling team's first at LCHS.
