There will be a new person in charge of the Marysville High School girls basketball program next winter.
Brooke Young told the Journal-Tribune this morning that she has stepped down from the head coaching position.
Young stated she told her team Tuesday afternoon.
“I am stepping down for family and personal reasons,” Young told the newspaper.
Young guided the Lady Monarchs to a 21-25 record during the past two seasons. Marysville won its first tournament game in six years with a first-round victory over Delaware Hayes a couple of weeks ago.
The second-year head coach was suspended for a brief time earlier this season for an alleged “mistake in judgement” after an off-court team function in late December.
Young declined to comment about the situation during this morning’s interview.
“There was no pressure (to resign) from anyone,” she said. “This was my decision and I feel it’s best for me and my family.”
Young, who is a math instructor at the Marysville Early College High School, said she feels the basketball program is in good shape.
“I feel confident the program will go forward well,” she said. “I am happy and proud that I had the opportunity to coach the girls the past two years.
“There are definitely positives in this program going forward.”
‘We received the resignation less than 24 hours ago,” MHS athletic director Joey Day said this morning.
“We are going to get through the remainder of our winter season with the rest of our teams,” he said. “After that, we will post the position internally to see if we have any interest (among the staff).
“If need be, we will then open the position outside the district.”
Day said there is no timeline for the submission of applications or the start of the interview process.
“We want to be thorough and efficient in this process,” he said.
