Dager steps down at New Haven

New Haven boys basketball coach Kurt Dager resigned after the end of the season.

Dager was 11-10 this past season and 57-113 in eight years as head coach and also served eight years with the program as an assistant coach.

Dager said he informed his players after the Senior Night game Feb. 24 vs. Wayne.

"I knew at the beginning of the year I was going to end with this group of seniors," he said. "I have been coaching at New Haven for 16 years, eight as head coach. It was time."

With the closing of another East Allen County Schools high school in the spring in Harding, does this mean that the Hawks veteran boys basketball coach Al Gooden will become the next coach for the Bulldogs?

Stay tuned.
