Myers Park girls basketball coach Dustin Terrel resigns

Myers Park girls basketball coach Dustin Terrel, who led the Mustangs to the state semifinals in March, has resigned, Mustangs athletics director Rick Lewis said.

Lewis said Terrel has taken a job as an assistant coach at Wingate University. He said Myers Park would hire a coach within a week.

Under Terrel, Myers Park started the 2011-12 season with 31 straight wins. The Mustangs lost in the N.C. 4A Western Regional championship game to West Forsyth. Next season, Myers Park is scheduled to return nine of 13 players and will be a state championship favorite.

Terrel is a quality coach with high character that has improved his craft over the past four years at the High School and Collegiate level. He has paid his dues showing his passion for the sport and capabilities as a leader and developer of young ladies and men. He is a consumate student of the game. Myers Park is losing a great coach with incredible basketball teaching skills. I am confident he will be missed by Myers Park and Wingate will reap the benefits of his expertise. MP is returning an incredible team and the new coach will surely be pleased with the talent and level of player in the program. Terrel is ready for the next level and I wish him the best!

What Terrel is not saying is more telling than all other reasons. He is leaving for the same reason Tim Newman left Butler, because CMS is a dispicable place to work.
