EDMOND — It’s possible Edmond North softball coach Rick Nordyke has coached his final game for the Huskies. Nordyke, who has been the face of the baseball and softball program for the school since its inception, has come under fire recently. A special meeting of the Edmond School Board is tonight to review the complaints. In the last year, 10 complaints have been filed against Nordyke — seven in baseball and three in softball. The natural assumption is to say this all stems from playing time, but Oklahoma City attorney David Kearney said it has nothing to do with that. "I told them to not even bother if this was about playing time because that is a discretionary decision,” Kearney said. "It’s not. It’s about coach Nordyke creating such a negative atmosphere in the program that kids dread going to practice and games and will even quit the sports they love.” A letter was sent to the North administration last April, asking for a meeting to discuss concerns about Nordyke’s performance and conduct. It was signed by every senior parent from last year’s baseball team, including Kearney, except for Denney Crabaugh, the Oklahoma City University baseball coach. Nordyke stepped down as the Huskies’ baseball coach after last season, saying he wanted to spend more time with his family and watch his daughter play softball, and the matter was dropped. However, after softball season, three more complaints have been filed against Nordyke since February, and the parents are asking for the termination of Nordyke’s coaching tenure at North. "You’re talking about somebody’s livelihood,” said Crabaugh, who has known Nordyke for more than 40 years. "He has respect for Edmond, for its traditions and the kids. He’s a man of character, and you can’t say that about that many people anymore.” Tonight’s meeting is the final step of a four-step complaint resolution policy at North — an appeal to the board. North’s administration has reviewed the complaints and conducted its own investigation and stated there is no evidence to support firing Nordyke. Kearney said there hasn’t been any talk of taking legal action if Nordyke isn’t terminated tonight, but he also said he wouldn’t rule it out because "we just want to do what’s best for the program.” He said prior classes have felt the same way about Nordyke but were afraid to come forward because of fears of retaliation against the kids. At last Monday’s board meeting, people spoke out in support of Nordyke, including Linda Dixon, the mother of a long line of Dixon girls who have played for Nordyke. Miranda and Leslie were on the 2004 state championship team, and Jordan, a freshman, helped lead the Huskies back to the state tournament this year. Jordan created a Facebook page in support of Nordyke that has more than 335 members as of Sunday night. "It’s a very rare thing what North has in coach Nordyke,” Linda Dixon said. "He’s been tremendous for the program and truly cares for the girls.” Nordyke has more than 400 wins in 16 years as a baseball coach and more than 300 wins in 15 years as the softball coach. Nordyke said he is cooperating with the investigation but declined to comment any further.
