Saying he wants to leave when he's still enjoying it, Phil Ward announced his resignation as Wayzata's boys basketball coach.
Ward coached the Trojans for 17 seasons, winning 251 games. He will continue to teach at Wayzata High School and says he's not sure if he'll coach again someday.
Former Wayzata player and assistant coach Nick Tibesar has been named the interim coach for the Trojans. Tibesar spent six seasons assisting Ward before becoming Andover's head coach for the past two seasons.
Tibesar's Andover team reached the state tournament last season.
The Wayzata head coaching job will be opened for a permanent coach to be hired after the upcoming season.
