OPEN LETTER: July 11, 2014
Today, I officially resigned as head basketball coach at Twin Valley High School and I would like to take this opportunity to say a few things.
First, I would like to express my sincere gratitude, respect and thanks for those in the community, who supported me. I would like to say thank you to all of the players who went along on this wonderful ride and especially those who went the extra mile to make a difference!
I would like to give credit to Coach Wright, Richard Smith, Derek Vandyke, Derek Keen, Adam Keene, Matt Baldwin, Cody Hubbard, Garrett Horne, for helping me in the past, whether it was with coaching, advice or a body on the court, you guys are the kind of people that one must surround themselves with in order to be successful. Loyalty is way underrated! I appreciate yours more than you will ever know.
I would like to quell any rumors that might be circulating regarding this decision. I first would like to clear any doubt that the former or current administration had any hand in this decision, THEY DID NOT. I had nothing but full support and backing from all Principals while at TV, including my current Principal and friend, Rick Goodman.
This decision came after long deliberation and prayer and I feel that it is what is best for me and my family, I have been through changes before and with each change comes an adjustment period and this will be met the same way that other changes have been, head on and with a clear heart.
Most important and finally, I would like to thank my wife and kids for the support and love that has been given me throughout my tenure as coach at TV. The sacrifice that has been made on their behalf can never be regained and for that I am forever indebted to them. I love you Tonya Moore , Haylee Moore and Gage Moore more than life itself and your support and sacrifice throughout these years are a testament to what it takes to be the children and the spouse of a coach.
In closing, sure, I left a little bit earlier than I had wanted, but sometimes you don't get to write the ending to your story. I'm fine with that, and I am comfortable with my decision.No regrets, no remorse and no hard feelings.
If anything is learned from this experience it is that the squeaky wheel always gets the grease, To those who helped speed up the process of my departure, I hope that you are genuinely pleased and happy with my decision. Although, I should be angry and bitter, I refuse to allow anyone or any condition to deter me of the peace of mind that comes from knowing that I always had the best interest of my players in mind and that I always did what I felt in my heart was the right thing. With that I can rest with a clear conscience and say, prayers will be sent your way.
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
