    Was this the first time anyone spoke to him about this?

    Did anyone confirm the resignation offer in writing? Email? Confirm it then take it. That's what everyone wanted right?

    Interesting turn of events. Returning players overwhelmingly supportive.

    Varsity coach resigns from the role. Sophomore coach elevated to varsity HC.

    Varsity coach will drop to run sophomore team and will assistant varsity (he was longtime sophomore coach before taking varsity job 3 years ago). Will NOT run practices.

    He acknowledged the pressure got to him on the negativity in a letter to the captains but still wants to remain a part of the program.

    Captains took it to the team. Everyone but one player approved. Both coaches went to the AD and did the switch.

    That's... kind of amazing.

    Good for them.

    Great to get it resolved peacefully and it kinda makes you wonder if all the drama was worth it.

    It clearly was.

    The coach knew what was happening with this particular crew, that he had lost them. Ten of 11 starters are coming back for the best team the program has had in seven years.

    Good work by those captains. Clearly the coach was wise enough, too, to know he was the wrong fit for HC.

    So no one spoke to him the whole time? Just after the season ended?
