Eau Claire (WQOW) -- When the boys basketball season begins next November, there will be a new head coach at Colfax.
Monday night, the Colfax school board accepted Andy Meade's resignation.
Meade has been a head coach for nineteen years at Colfax, from 1984 to 1999, and again from 2009 through last season. In that time, he led the Vikings to a record of 278 wins and 151 losses. Colfax qualified for the WIAA Division 4 State Tournament in 2012, and the Vikings made it to the Division sectional last season.
"It's just a great place to coach," says Meade, "if you've seen us play and seen our games, especially a Colfax-Elk Mound game or something like that, the communities support their basketball like nowhere else, it's just been a great ride for me."
Meade says there have been plenty of highlights in his head coaching career.
"Coaching all these great kids, certainly our state tournament run," says Meade, "we've had a lot of success, and we've won three straight regionals, we've been to three straight sectionals, and that's pretty rare in high school basketball."
Meade says he will continue teaching social studies at Colfax High School.
