Emmett High football coach and athletic director Mike Schroeder has resigned from both positions.
Schroeder informed the Idaho Statesman of his resignation Friday afternoon in an email. He declined to give a reason.
“I will comment about this decision at a later and appropriate time,” Schroeder wrote.
Assistant coach Zane Hines will take over the Emmett football team as it opens the season against Timberline at 1 p.m. Saturday at Dona Larsen Park, Emmett Principal Wade Carter said. The Huskies enter the season ranked fourth in the 4A state media preseason poll.
Carter said he couldn’t comment on Schroeder’s resignation.
Schroeder took over the Huskies in 2012, turning around a struggling program and leading it to a 38-13 record in five years. Emmett went 11-0 and won the 3A state title in 2015 — the program’s first — under Schroeder. The Huskies then returned to the 4A classification last fall, where they won their first 4A playoff game in program history.
Combined with his coaching experience in California, he has a career record of 138-68-1. His 138 career wins are the third most among active coaches in the 5A and 4A Southern Idaho Conferences.
