WPSD reached out to Marshall County principal Robin McCoy for comment, however, she declined to comment on the personnel matter.
Holder told WPSD the move came as a surprise to him and his staff. However, he said he's grateful for what his team managed to accomplish in one season.
"It’s always about the player and the joyful experiences of the team," he wrote in a statement. "My players know and understand how much I care about them as people first. Proud of our team growth on the floor, as people in the locker room, and people off the floor. It’s always bigger than basketball. We exceeded all expectations and I’m proud of the accomplishments this team had in all walks of the season. Definitely not something we saw coming 8 weeks after the season."
