Siebert confirms resignation as Falls boys basketball coach

March 28, 2011

Menomonee Falls boys basketball coach Ben Siebert confirmed today that he resigned from his position effective last Friday.

The information was originally reported by Wissports.net on Saturday.

Siebert, a math teacher at the high school, had held the position for three years compiling a a 47-25 record, including back-to-back WIAA sectional final berths in 2009 and 2010 and a 21-4 Greater Metro Conference championship mark in 2009-10.

Siebert declined to go into specifics other than to say his resignation was for personal reasons.

He said he informed athletic director Dave Petroff and then spoke to the team last Friday.

Falls and Siebert went through a challenging 11-12 campaign this winter, which included several close losses.

Two-time all-stater J.P. Tokoto announced March 3 that he would be attending the University of North Carolina following his graduation in 2012.

The idea that Tokoto might be attending a prep school instead of finishing out his final year at Menomonee Falls was floated at the announcement ceremony but his family would neither confirm or deny that story, saying that they would act in Tokoto's best interest.

Petroff was out of town and could not be reached for comment.
