Warsaw boys basketball coach Doug Ogle announced Monday that he will retire at the end of this season. Ogle has a 273-140 record in 18 seasons with the Tigers, who are 11-9 this year.
"Coaching is hard, and it is not getting any easier. I do feel good about the successes of Tiger Basketball during my tenure ... both on the court and with what our team members have done moving forward in their lives," Ogle wrote in an open letter. "I have been competing hard for thirty-five years, and I look forward to a less stressful, less busy life. That said, I also look forward to competing with our players for one more stretch as we go up to Elkhart on Wednesday night to begin sectional play."
Warsaw opens play in the Class 4A Elkhart Sectional against Goshen (11-11) on Wednesday.
