D’Andrea out as coach…. 

MIKE D’ANDREA, ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL COACHES IN STATE HISTORY, HAS HANDED IN HIS RESIGNATION TO THE CENTRAL OFFICE OF THE PORTLAND PUBLIC SCHOOLS—HE’S STEPPING DOWN AS HEAD BASEBALL COACH AND HEAD BASKETBALL COACH.

THIS ALL COMES A WEEK AFTER THREE OF D’ANDREA’S ASSISTANTS WERE FIRED AFTER THEY ATTENDED A POST-CHAMPIONSHIP PARTY IN JUNE–WHERE THERE WERE ALLEGATIONS OF UNDERAGE DRINKING.

AT DEERING…D’ANNDREA BUILT A BASEBALL DYNASTY…WINNINGS 7 STATE TITLES IN 11 YEARS…AND LED THE GIRLS BASKETBALL TEAM TO TWO STATE TITLES IN 7 YEARS.

D’ANDREA SAYS THIS IS NOT THE END OF HIS COACHING CAREER…BUT HE NEEDS SOME TIME TO RECHARGE HIS BATTERIES.
