Christian Tiller is no longer the head softball coach at Briarwood Academy.
Tiller, who was in his second season, tenured his letter of resignation last Wednesday to Briarwood Academy Athletic Director Clayton Parish.
The letter, which was brief, was submitted by Tiller, according to Parish, "in the best interest of the team."
Parish said Tiller's resignation was effective immediately and that it only pertained to his softball coaching position. He will continue to teach at the school, Parish said.
Last season, Tiller led the Lady Buccaneers to an overall record of 17-11 with the Lady Buccaneers making it into the state playoffs. Through last Tuesday, this year's team had posted an overall record of 7-8 under his guidance and a GISA region mark of 2-3.
During a telephone interview on Monday night from his home in Stapleton, Tiller reflected on his time as softball coach.
"The players always gave me 100 percent on the field," Tiller said.
He added that he will continue to teach in the classroom and has hopes of continuing to serve as boys' varsity basketball head coach.
"That's my plan right now," Tiller said.
He had been assisted this season by Hannah Batrous, a former multiple-sport athlete at Briarwood Academy, who has now assumed the duties as head softball coach at the school for the remainder of this season.
Batrous is in her first year of teaching at Briarwood.
