Sandra ClarkUncategorized

John East has resigned as athletic director at Christian Academy of Knoxville, and Ried Estus has been named his successor. Estus most recently served as assistant principal at CAK’s high school. He will assume his new post on June 1.

East served as CAK’s athletic director since June 2014 and will be leaving to pursue a new business venture. Estus has been with CAK since 2009 and has more than 20 years of experience as an athletic director, most recently at Lees-McRae College. During his tenure at Lees-McRae, Estus served in a variety of roles, including founder of the women’s soccer program in 1987, head women’s soccer coach, head women’s tennis coach, head softball coach, physical education instructor and athletic director.

In 2011, Lees-McRae named its soccer facility after Estus, and in 2013 he was inducted into the Fred I. Dickerson Hall of Fame for his work as both a coach and athletic director for the college.
