On May 1, Badger Athletic Director Jim Kluge confirmed that head boys basketball coach Darin Lottig was fired, but declined to comment on the reasons for Lottig’s termination.

“I won’t comment on that, but we’ll be posting the job tomorrow,” Kluge said on Thursday night.

The Regional News was unable to reach Badger High School representatives for more information regarding the circumstances of Lottig’s termination.

Voice mails and emails left with Kluge, Lottig, Athletic Secretary Tami Buntrock and assistant boys basketball coach Casey Drake were not returned.

At 7 a.m. on May 7, Kluge responded to Regional News questions regarding the reasons for Lottig's termination through an email:

"We have begun the search for a new head boys basketball coach," Kluge wrote. "Badger High School would like to thank Coach Lottig for his hard work and dedication that he has given to the basketball program over the past 3 seasons."

In his three seasons as head coach at Badger, Lottig compiled a 24-45 record. Badger teams were 5-18, 8-15 and 11-12 under Lottig.
