Glenn Reese is stepping down after two seasons as boys basketball coach at Blue Ridge High School.
“Although I have enjoyed my brief time at Blue Ridge, now that the program is headed in a positive direction, I must step away to spend more time with my family,” Reese said in a news release this morning.
“I have three children and recently had the realization that my oldest child, Caroline, is just six years away from graduating high school. Being able to attend all of my children’s games and activities is a big priority, and it would be difficult to do this if I continued coaching at Blue Ridge since we live 20 miles away.”
Reese compiled a record of 13-35 at Blue Ridge, including 10-14 this past season.
“When I accepted the head coaching position at Blue Ridge two years ago, my goal was to instill discipline in the basketball program and teach players what it takes to be successful,” Reese said in the release. “Progress was made, which is evident by us winning 10 games, the most wins here in the last four years. However, it was still disappointing to lose five games by just one possession.”
