The contracts of Dodge City Community College football head coach Bob Majeski and all but one of his assistants were not renewed according to the coach and athletic director Casey Malek.
"It was a clean break as of 2:15 p.m. (Monday) afternoon," Majeski said in a phone interview as he was driving his car leaving the area. "They said they weren't going to renew my contract."
Malek said he had asked Friday afternoon for the resignations of Majeski and most of his assistant coaches before the final game of the season against Air Force Prep, a 55-13 loss. Malek said he hadn't received any resignation letter as of 3 p.m. Monday afternoon but Majeski was out of his office.
"As of Friday, I asked Bob to resign," Malek said. "We have not renewed the contracts and we would not be renewing the contracts of all the coaches but Rusty Morgan."
Morgan is the linebackers coach for the Conqs. Also leaving their positions at DCCC include David Snodgrass (defensive coordinator), Todd Middleton (defensive line coach), Jean Cherizol (wide receivers coach) and David Walker (offensive line coach).
Majeski's Conqs lost all nine games (including seven Jayhawk game) and scored no more than 20 points in any game in his final season. He had been coach the past six years with the Conquistadors, compiling a 7-48 overall record (7-34 in the Jayhawk Conference) and was 2011 Jayhawk Coach of the Year for getting the Conqs into the regional playoffs.
Majeski had always stressed during his time with the Conqs on getting the right attitude player at Dodge City for them to leave the program as grown-up men with character.
"I will not let metal and lights determine if we did what we were supposed to do," Majeski said. "I knew that was how I was going to be judged and was judged, by wins and losses; but I will not let that judge me on if I was a success or not.
"What we did was turn a lot of young men into men and taught them life's lessons they'll carry on with their lives. I will judge if I was successful or not by seeing those men in 20 years after they went through our program and see what they have become."
