In high school, Josh Loy made the transfer from Trinity Episcopal School to Cathedral High in his senior year of 1998-99.
Loy is making the transfer once again, leaving Trinity as an assistant football coach to become athletic director, defensive coordinator and track coach at Cathedral. He will also handle the strength and conditioning program.
"I feel like God has blessed me with this opportunity," Loy said. "Cathedral is a special place. I'm looking forward to going back."
The 27-year-old Loy will teach elementary Physical Education.
"Josh is familiar with the situation at Cathedral and we're glad to have him," said Cathedral head football and baseball coach Craig Beesley. "He'll work with the defense in football and is well-knowledged in weight lifting. He brings a lot of facets and we're excited to have him."
Loy replaces Roy Garcia, who retired after 43 years in high school athletics, including the last 40 at Cathedral.
"He has some big shoes to fill," Beesley said. "It's tough losing someone like Coach Garcia, but we took a big step in hiring Josh. He is going to help out a lot."
Loy said Garcia originally called him about the job.
"It has to be a special place for Coach Garcia to work there for 40 years," Loy said. "I'm looking forward to sitting down with everyone and working with Coach Craig and Coach Ken (Beesley) because they both coached me."
Loy graduated from Louisiana State University in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in education. After graduating from LSU, Loy worked as a graduate assistant strength and conditioning coach at Southeastern Louisiana and a graduate assistant defensive backs coach at Delta State while working on his masters in physical education.
Loy assisted with football and girls basketball at Trinity.
"There are a lot of great people at Trinity," Loy said. "I'm really going to miss the kids. Coach (David) King has been great to me. I would not have left except for a special opportunity."
