Ken Cofer, who led Cook to four playoff appearances in his four seasons, has resigned.
“I will miss Adel more than anyone could imagine,” Cofer told GHSF Daily. “Great community, good support and the best kids any coach could ever ask for.”
Cofer said he would “test the waters” for another head coaching job, but “it would have to be the right fit for my family.”
