Dan Leffel resigns as Falls boys basketball coach

March 21, 2013

Boys basketball coach Dan Leffel has decided to step down after two years as the varsity basketball coach.
 
Leffel has coached 13 years, 10 in Menomonee Falls and three at Wisconsin Lutheran College.
 
“I’ve coached for many years and have decided that now is the right time to walk away from coaching to spend quality time with my active family," says Leffel. "I’m also looking forward to having more time to dedicate to teaching
third grade at Riverside Elementary School."
 
“Like the entire Menomonee Falls community, I was surprised by the
announcement, but commend Dan on the decision to make his family time a
priority,” said athletic and activities director, Ryan Anderson. “This year’s team
finished the season with some gritty wins. The future of Falls basketball is
promising. The returning and upcoming players within the program will fuel a
solid line-up for years to come.”
Leffel added, "I am very proud of the players I’ve coached over the years and
look back fondly on the time spent teaching those young men the game of
basketball, and a little about life outside of the game. I'm thankful for the support of parents, the district, and Indians' fans during my tenure. I wish great success to the next varsity basketball coach of Menomonee Falls and look forward to sitting in the stands with my family and cheering on the program."
The position opening will be posted on Friday, March 22. Interested applicants
can apply on WECAN or contact Athletic & Activities Director, Ryan Anderson,
for more information. A selection committee will be formed and a new coach
will be in place by the end of April.
