Scott Mahmens plans to retire as the athletic director at Linn-Mar High School at the end of the 2015-16 school year, he told the Metro Sports Report Thursday afternoon.
"Yes, I have made the decision to retire at the end of this school year," he said in an e-mail. "My last day on the job will be June 29.
"I have been in the education field for 32 years and just feel like it is time for me to make this difficult decision."
Mahmens has been the director for one of the most successful athletic departments in Iowa. He came to Linn-Mar from Clinton High School in 2005 and has overseen a program that consistently ranks near the top in prep sports for boys and girls.
The Linn-Mar school district has built some of the most impressive athletic facilities in the state during Mahmens' term, including a new football stadium and track, a new aquatics center and a new baseball/softball complex.
