Gene Haynes was the Athletic Director when Andy Marinkovich was in school.

Mr. Haynes has a superpower. He can remember faces and often times names of almost all of the students that come though the doors of Omaha North. He always made me and my peers feel seen by being able to not only recognizing us, but checking in and connecting. He is synonymous with Omaha North and it's so hard to picture the halls without his presence. You knew instantly where you stood with Mr. Haynes when you would cross paths in his halls. He could cut through any bull and hold every student accountable for their actions. An immediate smile and you knew it was all good though. Former students won't forget hearing his voice booming in the hallways and he will truly be missed at the end of this year.
