For almost two decades, basketball players, alums, boosters, at fans at Canton High have come to expect to hear the same voice and see the same face sitting on the Tigers bench.
Next season, that simply will not be the case at CHS.
After 19 seasons at the helm of the Tigers hoops program, head coach Andy Anderson has decided to step away from his post.
WGEM Sports contacted Anderson Thursday afternoon and he stated simply that he was stepping away from the program on his own terms.
He also has a strong desire to spend more time with his wife and two children as well. Coach Anderson has a son in the 6th grade currently, and he also has a two year old at home.
Under Anderson’s guidance, CHS posted more than 450 victories on the prep hardwood. That includes 20 tournament and 9 district championships.
The Tigers also made it to two Elite Eight appearances under Anderson and a third and fourth place finish in the state tournament.
Coach Anderson’s resignation was accepted on March 11 by the Board Of Education.
He’ll continue teaching at Canton High School as well.
