Head coach of the Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa Jaguars for 21 seasons, B-B-E elementary teacher and boys' basketball coach Dave Montbriand announced his retirement from the coaching ranks today.
Montbriand's letter of resignation and retirement hasn't been acted on by the B-B-E school board, but that will be addressed at their regular April meeting.
"Upon the school board acting on it, the search for a new head coach will begin. I hope to remain in the program at a lower level as I continue to love basketball," said Montbriand. "I feel very confident that my decision is the right one, and I look forward to supporting the new coach in any way I can."
