Great story. Obviously, she will be missed by the players and fans, but no one will ever question her priorities. I know the dilemma firsthand. I dreamed of coaching at the highest level of football and when I reached it, I realized what I was missing in my young daughter's life by continuing to coach. The question you ask yourself is what would I regret most down the road, and the answer was obvious. This is a great example and lasting reminder for the young ladies on the team. Thank you for all that you gave to the Gopher program and now have fun coaching your kids. Being a parent is the greatest gift!
