Bogart to resign as Mill Valley boys basketball coach
Mill Valley High boys basketball coach Justin Bogart has decided to resign from his position effective the end of the school year.
Bogart, who has been the only boys coach at Mill Valley, amassed a 193-114 record in 14 years. He led MVHS to two Kaw Valley League championships in 2004 and 2005. He also oached the Jaguars to a fourth-place state finish in 2006, and a third place finish in 2013.
In a statement, he said he'd like spend more time with his family and pursue other interests and, perhaps, other professional opportunities.
“The true reward of my coaching experience lies in the relationships that I have established with my coaching staff, coaching colleagues, and officials," Bogart said. "However, the relationships that I established with the players bring me the greatest memories. Seeing these young men grow up into successful adults who utilize their experiences in our program to establish fulfilling professional careers and family relationships is more reward than I thought possible.”
Bogart said he will support the search and hiring of a new coach and offer his services in any manner that he can.
Activities director Dave Ewers said in a statement the search begins immediately. Ewers is grateful for everything Bogart has done for the school and the basketball program.
“In addition to this success, Bogart established a program that values community service, integrity, citizenship, leadership, and great effort and attitude," Ewers said. "Bogart has gone to great lengths to develop young men on the court as well as off of the court."
