Last Wednesday, less than a week before the team’s opening game, Lady Bulldog’s Head Coach Chris Myers resigned from his position after three years with the team due to “personal issues” according to Burgin Superintendent Richard Webb who would not comment on Myer’s departure any further. Myers was replaced by his former assistant head coach Ray Daniels who accepted the job hours after Myer’s resignation.
“We were very fortunate to find Coach (Ray) Daniels in such a short period of time,” said Webb. “He has hit the ground running in the short time he has been here and we are confident in him leading the program.”
Daniels had been Myer’s assistant the past three season before stepping away from the team this year to spend more time with his family.
He was asked by Myers personally to reconsider being a part of the team the day before Myers resigned and accepted the position Wednesday.
“I really didn’t have a lot of time to think about it. I talked to Myers the day before I accepted the job about coming back on as an assistant,” said Daniels. “I had planned to come back and help, but when I got the word that he resigned I was shocked. Now that I’m here my focus is on getting caught up so the team can be successful this season.”
