BATH TOWNSHIP — Adam Burris has stepped down as Bath’s head varsity boys basketball coach after two seasons.
“Coaching at Bath for the last two years has been an experience that I will value and cherish and I appreciate my time there, and I thank the administration for giving me the opportunity,” Burris said. “I am disappointed that I will not be able to continue the growth we have shown, but at this time I am stepping down as head coach.
“I am proud of the players and what we have accomplished in my short time at Bath. In this crazy year filled with uncertainty due to COVID we were able to win a sectional championship this year. We also went from two wins my first year to 12 this year.”
The Wildcats went 2-21 and 12-13 in his two seasons, including a 2021 Division III sectional championship.
Those interested in the coaching position, should send a letter of interest, resume and three written references to Athletic Director Cam Staley at firstname.lastname@example.org. Application deadline is April 9.
