Brian Holstrom (148-65) confirmed his resignation from the head coaching position at Salpointe earlier today.
“…I let our players know today that I am stepping down,” Holstrom told AllSportsTucson.com.
“My decision is entirely based on the desire to focus on being the best husband, father and teacher I can be during the next phase of my life. This is not a “knee-jerk” reaction to the end of our season and, for a long time, I have known that this point in the calendar year would be the best time to separate and allow for the program’s proper transition to a new coach while I prepare to primarily pursue family and other professional goals.
“Salpointe has been incredibly supportive during my six years as head coach and I will remain employed teaching full-time as part of the community.”
Holstrom guided the Lancers to two state runner-up finishes in his tenure including a second place finish this year.
