Linda Peete named athletic director at Crete-Monee High School

Updated: August 19, 2013 3:48PM



Linda Peete was named athletic director of Crete-Monee at a District 201-U school board meeting Tuesday night.

She was approved by a 4-1 vote, with two board members absent.

Peete, who was the girls volleyball coach at Southland College Prep Charter High School in Richton Park during the 2012-13 school year, succeeds Gene Cahan, whose contract wasn’t renewed.

Peete’s appointment does not come without controversy.

A search committee was asked to submit its top three candidates to the school board in order of preference. According to sources, Greg Schneider was the unanimous pick for the position and was on the agenda to be recommended for the AD post during a June 17 school board meeting. The board, however, decided to table the item and reopen the selection process.

Peete was athletic director of compliance at Chicago State University before arriving at Southland College Prep Charter.
