Midway is coming off a 7-4 year where they made the 1A playoffs before losing to Cloudland in the first round.
“My time at Midway has been great and I appreciate all the players hard work and all the support from the community and the administration,” Minton said.
“I am really excited about the opportunity at CAK and it really feels good to be able to coach and teach the kids there.”
