Hollar resigns hoops position at WLS

The dean of local boys basketball coaches has stepped down.

Longtime West Liberty-Salem coach Aaron Hollar (pictured) announced his resignation earlier this week.

Hollar, who led the Tigers for 15 years, said two factors caused him to step aside.

He wants to spend more time with his wife and their three daughters. Also, he said the demands as the district's elementary principal continue to increase since he took the job six years ago.

During his tenure, the Tigers won three league titles and two sectional championships.

Hollar's final season was memorable. WLS won a school record 20 games (20-6) and fell in the district title game to defending state champ Cincinnati Summit Country Day.

Hollar, 40, had a record of 183-146 at West Liberty-Salem.

The Tigers will have several new varsity coaches next year. Along with boys basketball, athletic director Jake Vitt is searching for new coaches in football and volleyball.
