"I think it's a step in the right direction, because I think kids going from school to school all over the state is poor, or whatever you want to call it," said Mainland athletics director Dick Toth, who is also Volusia County's athletics director."I think that once a child enters the ninth grade . . . there needs to be a little bonding there.If they don't get along, work it out as best you can.But kids playing a varsity sport at four schools in four different years is ridiculous."

Toth felt that it may be a deterrent to athletes who easily slip from school to school to play on better teams.

Dick Toth is retiring today after 35 years at Mainland High School as a basketball coach and athletic director.

...
Toth has been a fixture for 35 years at Mainland High, a school he once thought would be a steppingstone toward a college coaching career. But over the years, notes like that email convinced him that Mainland wsa where he belonged.
"The greatest thing about education is you have the possibility of changing people's lives," Toth said, sitting in his office outside of the Bucs' gym on one of his final days on the job. "Especially here where we have such a diverse (number) of kids, and you don't know what their home lives are like, and you pat them on the back and it might be the only pat they get that day. You can make a difference and not know that you ever did, and you get a letter like this 32 years later.
"It rocked my world."
It's tough to imagine Mainland without Dick Toth.
...
"He wants everything to stay as is," Toth said.
"He gave his life to Mainland," said Charles Brinkerhoff, who was one of Toth's assistant coaches on the boys basketball team before succeeding him in 1992.
...
My dad was an alcoholic and couldn't care less what I did," Toth said.
...
The 6-foot-7 Toth graduated from high school in 1968 and went on to be a three-year starter at Georgia, where he met his wife, Sondra. A two-year team captain, Toth averaged 8.3 points and 6.7 rebounds for the Bulldogs. He went on to coach at two Georgia high schools, sandwiched around a two-year stint as a pro player in Belgium. He was lured to Daytona Beach in 1979 by two iconic basketball coaches from this area.
After Toth worked at Glenn Wilkes' famed basketball camp, the Stetson coach called Mainland principal Jack Surrette, who himself had won two state championships at Seabreeze.
...
"Coach Wilkes asked me where I was from and said, 'Well, we need to get you down here in Florida.'" Toth said.
...
Toth had a chance to leave Mainland in 1986 when Jim Larranaga, his former high school teammate who now is the men's coach at Miami, got the coaching job at Bowling Green.
...
Toth said he turned down Larranaga's offer to join his staff, because it meant a pay cut.
...
Like the Jimmy Stewart character in "It's a Wonderful Life," Toth said he eventually realized that the best move he ever made was staying put.
A 'SECOND FATHER' TO ME
"Dick Toth has done so much for so many people," said Brinkerhoff, who won state championships at Mainland in 1995, '96 and '98.
...
"Coach Toth has been like a second father to me," Terry Anthony said, "Not just here but after I left and went to Florida State."
...
"In my life I'd say I had three great coaches," Anthony said, "Coach Toth, Coach John Eason (former FSU receivers coach) and Coach Bobby Bowden (FSU head coach).
...
Toth stepped down as Mainland's boys basketball coach in 1992 after 13 seasons, but remained as athletic director, a job he's held since 1987.
"Imagine all the football and basketball games I've seen," he said.
Toth returned to coaching in 2000 when principal Patsy Graham asked him to take over the girls' basketball team.
...
McCloud may never have made it to the NBA, Brinkerhoff said, if Toth didn't intervene when McCloud had wanted to quit college.
...
"George had come home, but Dick went and got him and drove him back to Florida State and told him, 'you're not quitting.' The next year Pat Kennedy moved George from forward to point guard (where he averaged over 20 points his final two college seasons)."
...
And though Toth was not on the bench during that stretch, Brinkerhoff said much of the team's success belongs to him.
...
"I am truly an example of when people say athletics can be a way out for a kid," Toth said. "I lived that life. I truly have."
