DC Athletic Director Announces Football Coaching Transition

01/23/2012

After several months of thought and prayer, both during the season and since, Coach Bostater has asked to step down as the leader and Head Coach of Varsity Football Program. I will share a portion of a letter he wrote to the football staff that explains his vocational status: My (continued) professional challenges require me to resume formalized education and complete some professional certifications.... I have deferred some of this for years and the years are slipping by. This has already started as I had night class last night.

[ric-bostater]Coach Bostater's leadership in helping get the football started here at DC has included roles as an Assistant Coach, Defensive Coordinator and Head Coach. Under his leadership the school posted its' first winning season in 2010 of 6-4 and were 9-1 this past season just missing the state playoffs. Coach Bo resigns with a Head Coaching record of 19-11. More importantly we will never be able to thank him enough for the hours of sacrifice he has put into building up the character of the young men he has coached and will continue to coach here at DCS in a reduced role.

Thankfully this transition will be a smooth one as Coach Bo will remain on staff as an assistant coach this coming fall and Coach David "Doc" Amlin will step into the Head Coaching duties for the 2012 season.

Doc Amlin joined the DCS Football Staff in 2010 as the Offensive Coordinator. Prior to coaching at DCS, Doc was the Offensive Coordinator at Vandalia-Butler High School. Doc has over 30 years of football coaching experience at schools around the Miami Valley such as: Vandalia-Butler, Carroll, Chaminade-Julienne, Troy Christian and our own Dayton Christian. 16 of those years have been spent as a Varsity Offensive Coordinator and three of which were spent during the seasons of 2003-2005 as Troy Christian's Head Coach; TCS made the playoffs during the first of his two seasons at the helm.

Coach Amlin is a graduate of Vandalia-Bulter High School and has a B.S. degree from East Tennessee State University and earned his D.D.S. from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. He and his wife, Christy, reside in Vandalia and have five adult children, 4 grandchildren and another on the way.

Thanks goes out to both Coach Bostater and Coach Amlin for their continued service to the Dayton Christian community.
