Successful high school girl's basketball coach resigns because of parents

Kristen McDonnell took to Twitter Monday evening to announce that she is resigning her position as girl's head basketball coach at Braintree High School in Massachusetts.  During her 8 years as head coach, McDonnell was 166-25, including a 63-game winning streak. She led Braintree to two state titles in the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons. The latter team finished 25-0 and is considered by many to be the best high school girls basketball team in state history.


Though it wasn't mentioned specifically in her resignation letter, many believe McDonnell is stepping away due to parents who were unhappy with the playing time of their child.  Braintree finished 21-5 this season, losing in the state final.
