He issued the resignation via e-mail to the school on Tuesday morning.

DeLaney told the News he has accepted the positions of assistant principal and athletic director at Heath High School.

“This is the right move for my family,” said DeLaney. “(But) it’s been a great experience (at Fredericktown).”

DeLaney will not be coaching basketball with the Bulldogs.

“It will be interesting, when winter comes around, how that will be,” said DeLaney, who has coached basketball every year since 2002.

As boys head basketball coach, DeLaney accumulated a 38-10 record over two seasons with the Freddies, including two sectional titles. He coached several players to all-district status including Ryan Logan, who was named Second Team All-Ohio.

“He did an excellent job,” said Fredericktown principal Robert Moore. “I have nothing but good things to say about the job he did.”
