Dear North Andover Community,


We are pleased to announce that Mr. Steve Nugent will be the next Director of Athletics at North Andover High School as of July 1, 2021.  Throughout this process, Steve impressed students, faculty and community members with his leadership, his relationship building skills and his overall commitment to the North Andover Athletic Community.


Steve will remain with the North Andover High School community as an administrator and will continue to support our Guidance department in his transition to Athletic Director.  Steve is the longtime Guidance Director and Head Coach for the Boys Indoor and Outdoor Track teams. He is a member of the Executive Board of the Massachusetts State Track Coaches Association. Steve is a graduate of Saint Anselm's College with a Bachelors in Business and obtained a Masters in Education Psychology at Cambridge College. 


We would like to thank the Athletic Director Search Committee for their great work in selecting three strong finalists.  We had an impressive candidate pool of over 75 applicants to choose from.  


Thank you for your continuous support to the students and student athletes of North Andover.  Congratulations Steve.
