One of the winningest hockey coaches in Minnesota high school history announced his resignation on Tuesday.
There is no word what prompted the decision, but Mike Randolph confirmed Tuesday that he's stepping down after 32 seasons coaching at Duluth East High School. A formal press conference will be held on Friday.
Randolph coached the Greyhounds from 1988-2003, and again from 2004-2021, leading Duluth East to 18 state tournament appearances, including Class AA championships in 1995 and 1998. Duluth East also lost in the championship game six times under Randolph. His 658 career wins ranks third in Minnesota high school history.
According to the Duluth News Tribune, Duluth Public Schools has confirmed that Randolph "had been under investigation most of this spring after complaints were filed against him."
Additionally, the Duluth School Board was expected to meet for a "special meeting" Thursday "for the preliminary consideration of allegations against an individual subject to its authority." The district has not said whom the allegations are about, though the Tribune says Randolph "implied his side of the story" will come out on Friday.
This is a developing story.
