Lawrence High School girls soccer coach Matt Anderson resigns

Lawrence High girls soccer coach Matt Anderson officially submitted his resignation to athletic director Ron Commons on Wednesday. Anderson had indicated his intention to leave the school in May.

Anderson, who coached the girls for the last six seasons, said that his classwork in pursuit of an MBA through the University of Phoenix took more time than he originally planned. He also works as an account manager at Laser Equipment Inc. out of Kansas City.

“I could not commit to all three — coaching, work and the schooling,” Anderson said. “I felt it was just unfair to the young ladies to not give them the full attention that the program needs.”

Lawrence High’s tradition attracted him to the school in the first place, and he said he will miss being a soccer coach for the school.

Commons said the school would begin advertising for a replacement immediately.

“We want to thank coach Anderson for his hard work in improving our girls soccer program the past couple of years,” Commons said in a statement.

Woah..didn't he say would STAY and coach the girls team in May?
This better be after this spring's season or he is really screwing those girls over. Good luck finding a girls only coach in couple months. Amazing.

"Anderson, who coached the girls for the last six seasons, said that his classwork in pursuit of an MBA through the University of Phoenix took more time than he originally planned."

Really? A sham degree from a sham university is the reason?

Thanks, edjajayhawk. The main reason I come here is so I can be scolded by obviously superior folks like yourself. You made my day.

What irony is that? Phoenix University (and most other "universities" like it) is fairly widely recognized as a scam whose primary purpose is to collect student loans.

I am a little shocked. This does leave the team is bad situation. Looked like LHS was going to have a pretty good team this year and there were a lot of girls depending on him to at least stay one more season.
