Several changes to the Carbon High Athletic department will actually be very familiar faces to everyone. Last year long time Athletic Director Jeff Jorgensen stepped down from that post. Veteran boys basketball coach Ted Bianco has taken over that position. Bianco also made a lateral move from boys basketball coach to the girls head basketball coaching position after the departure of Cami Carlson. Carlson left to spend more time promoting her newly published book, but also remains a teacher at Carbon High.

Bianco is excited about his new roles. He was the boys basketball coach for 11 years. Previous to that he was an assistant girls basketball coach from 1999-2000, Junior High girls in 97-98 season and the CEU women's basketball coach from 1991-96.

Taking on both new roles in one year has not seemed to slow him down. He said that although he has loved every minute of coaching the boys basketball program he was ready for some new challenges and change. Jorgensen has been a big help in the transition for Bianco. He also has said that the coaches and administration have been very supportive

He felt the taking on the job of athletic director was a good way to get to understand all the things that happen behind the scenes to make everything happen.

One of the tasks he has taken on is to streamline the fund raising efforts that have to happen for each sport. Instead of separate booster clubs for different sports, there will be one larger one that helps everyone. He has also been trying to find a way to assure that the multitudes of paper work each coaching staff has to do is not overlooked. The UHSAA is shifting more and more to online reporting, but there still is much to do.

"This is not a job for someone who hates paperwork," he said. "There is even more work involved than I realized. The hardest part is that everything comes rushing at you at once. Instead of just one sport to take care of I have them all.

"So far the job has been fun, but ask me in 10 years and maybe my answer will be much different," he laughed.
