Athletic Director

Mr. Rico Salliewhite

I have been married to my wife Kristen for thirteen years. We have two wonderful boys Jalen (16) and Josiah (12). They both are student-athletes at McCormick Middle and High Schools. I have been blessed to spend the last twenty years of my life coaching and teaching. My career has given me the opportunity to work with some amazing student-athletes. I have been fortunate to coach many All-Region, All-State, Player of the Year, North-South players, and college athletes during my tenure.  I am currently the athletic director, assistant principal, and head boys basketball coach. As the leader of the McCormick Athletic Department, I am extremely grateful for the opportunity I have to mold student-athletes and coaches to be positive change agents.
