Delmar Sprouse has resigned from his position as the Greenville High School boys head basketball coach.
Sprouse spent five years at the helm of the Hornets and in his last two years led the team to back-to-back playoff appearances, including a trip to the state tournament in Jackson in 2018.
"It was just time for me to do something else," Sprouse said. "I feel like I have given everything I can to Greenville High School. We accomplished a great deal in my time, but all credit goes to the players."
In a statement, the Greenville Public School District thanked Sprouse for his service.
"The Greenville Public School District would like to thank Coach Delmar Sprouse for his years of service. First and foremost, Coach Sprouse is a veteran educator, having been with GPSD for 18 years when started with the district in 2003. He has worked and served in various capacities including as an assistant teacher, teacher, assistant coach, head coach, and other support roles.
"For the past five years he has been the head basketball coach at Greenville High, and we appreciate Coach Sprouse's drive to instill the importance of hard work, dedication, sportsmanship, and overcoming adversity to our students. Although Coach Sprouse is stepping down as the head basketball coach, he will continue his teaching duties at GHS for the 2021-2022 school year."
