Veteran educator and athletic director Tim Lugo has been appointed to serve as Mountain View High’s athletic director effective next week. Lugo succeeds Shelley Smith, the school’s athletic director, head football coach and physical education teacher for the past 9 years.

Smith is retiring later this year.

“I am honored and grateful for the opportunity to be part of the Spartans’ athletic family,” Lugo said in a district press release. “I look forward to building relationships with the MVHS community and helping to build upon the sports legacy for which this school is historically known.”

Lugo most recently served as athletic director, head football coach and physical education teacher at Saratoga High School, and previously worked as a physical education teacher, assistant football coach and head baseball coach at Evergreen Valley High School. He has a total of 15 years of experience.
