Randy Pulley has resigned as the head boys basketball coach at Word of God.
Pulley, a former player at Word of God, will take over the basketball program at Christian Faith Center. Pulley confirmed the move on Thursday morning.
“My concern is, foremost, what is in the best interest of my players, and their futures, more than it is for myself," Pulley said in a press release. "I have known about [Christian Faith Center] for years, and I am eager to build there, but it will not change the level of respect I have for Word of God and the Summerfield family.”
Pulley took over the program last season after Quinton Jackson left the school, leading the Holy Rams to a 20-9 record. As a player, Pulley led Word of God to the 2001 N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association championship game, averaging over 25 points per game.
"My departure [from Word of God] was an amicable one. I will forever be appreciative for the privilege and opportunity given to me [by Dr. Summerfield], and I wish them nothing but God’s best moving forward," Pulley added.
Word of God is scheduled to appear in the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational in December. The team features one of the top point guards in the Class of 2013 in Josh Newkirk.
A replacement for Pulley has not been named. The next head coach at Word of God will be the fifth head coach in as many years.
HighSchoolOT.com has requested an interview with Randy Pulley and will have more later.
