By: Nathan Bloechl — sports@kilj.com

Mount Pleasant — The Mount Pleasant School Board approved several coaching changes at their meeting Monday night.

Chief among is the hiring of Aimee Iverson as the new JV girls’ basketball coach and varsity assistant.

Iverson was most recently the head varsity coach at New London, helping guide the Tigers through the COVID pandemic winter season this year.

Also approved by the board was the hiring of Todd Broeker as an assistant varsity softball coach.

Broeker will join the staff put together by Mike Beason, who is taking the reins from Troy Mears who left the mantle for the Panthers at the conclusion of last summer’s season.

In resignations — which should come as no surprise as he transitions into his role as principal — Mike Wilson will step down from his position on the varsity football coaching staff.

Wilson, who has long been one of the top lieutenants on Shawn Striegel’s staff, will depart effective immediately.

It is unknown as of this time who is the front-runner for his now vacated defensive coordinator position.
