  • John Vickers, a William Chrisman High School graduate who has been the Bears head boys basketball coach the past 15 years, announced his resignation Monday afternoon and met with his players after school.
    His longtime assistant Bill Adams also announced his resignation.
    “The timing is right for this,” Vickers said Monday evening. “This has been the hardest day of my life. It is a day I have been dreading and found it hard to prepare for. At least I went out with one of my best friends, Coach Adams.”
    Vickers compiled a 161-232 record while at Chrisman and led the Bears to a pair of conference titles in 2001 and 2009. In 2009, he guided the program to its first district championship since 1980. Chrisman finished 13-11 this season.
