Rich Maggio is out as St. Francis De Sales High School athletic director.

Maggio said Friday that he resigned, because he wanted "to go in a different direction in my life." The 2004 St. Francis De Sales grad said he was not forced out and said he planned on helping through the rest of the semester, but then said Friday was his last day.

"The school wanted to go in a different direction than I wanted to go," Maggio said. "I think it was best I step aside."

Principal Mary Kay Ramirez, who received a letter of resignation from Maggio earlier this week, said he will be missed.

She also said the athletic department will be run by committee until a replacement is found.

Maggio, who was athletic director for 1 1/2 years, praised his alma mater.

"It was great, and the coaches and athletes have been great to work with," he said. "I will miss them, but it is time to move on." -- Mike Nieto
