Houston High School volleyball coach Skye Wade, who resigned in November, will be an assistant coach at Pittsburgh (Kan.) State.

Houston High School head volleyball coach Skye Wade has resigned effective the end of the current school year.

Wade’s resignation was accepted Tuesday night during the closed session of the Houston school board’s monthly meeting. The news was announced Friday morning when the minutes were publicly released.

Wade, who was hired in May 2011, led the HHS volleyball program for four seasons. The Lady Tigers were 41-66-12 during that span, including an 8-19-2 record this past season.

“She thanked us for her time here in Houston,” Houston Superintendent Scott Dill said. “I think she is ready to move on with the next part of her life and career. It was very amicable, and we wish her the very best of luck.”

Wade is also a health and physical education teacher. Dill said all three of her positions will be posted online Monday.

Dill does not anticipate a new hire will be made anytime within the next few months. Coaching contracts have historically been offered or renewed in April.

“It was very respectful of coach Wade to resign at this time of the year,” Dill said. “It allows our school district ample time to really look for the next teacher and coach.”

Skye Wade coached the HHS volleyball team the past four seasons. Here are the Lady Tigers’ year-by-year records during that time:

  • 2011: 13-17-2
  • 2012: 12-17-2
  • 2013: 8-13-6
  • 2014: 8-19-2
