Ivan Flannery steps down as Antigo boys varsity basketball head coach
space
The Antigo Red Robins boys basketball program is in search of a new varsity head coach.

Ivan Flannery, who manned the Robins' bench for two seasons, resigned Wednesday in a public statement released to the “Red Robin Community.”

Flannery cited family and work responsibilities in his decision.

The statement read

“The past two years as the Varsity boys basketball coach has been an amazing experience and one that I will cherish and reflect on for many years to come. When accepting this position my number one goal was to help the program not take a step backwards in its transition from one tenure coach to hopefully another in the near future.”

“As a past graduate of Antigo High School, I wanted to do whatever I could to give back to the program that had given me so much in my own experience. With that being said, both my family and I have decided it is best for us if I step down as the head of the program. This decision hasn't been taken lightly, however, with the growing workload within my own career and the growing of my family I feel now is the best time to resign as the head coach.”

“Most importantly, I want to thank the players, their families and the public for the opportunity they gave me these past two years to grow as a coach and as a man. I wish the program the best of luck in the future and would love to help in any way possible at a less committed level. Go Robins!”

Flannery, who was a member of Antigo's last state tourney team in 2010, replaced the man he played under, in Jesse Shaw. Shaw left after the 2017-18 season, concluding 11 seasons at the helm of the Robins, to take over the program at Sheboygan South High School.

Flannery accumulated a 20-28 overall record in his two seasons as coach, including an 11-13 mark in the Great Northern Conference, while also going 2-2 in the playoffs. Flannery's team took second in the GNC in the 2018-19 season at 7-5, finishing behind only Mosinee.

The Robins then defeated Waupaca in a regional quarterfinal, before falling to New London in the second round of the playoffs.

This season's Robins started slow, but finished strong. Antigo eventually knocked off Lakeland on the road in regional play, before a furious comeback attempt at top-seed Hortonville in the next round came up just short.

“I am very appreciative of what coach Ivan Flannery has done for the boys basketball program,” Antigo Athletic Director Tom Schofield said. “His hard work and dedication to the program as the varsity head coach the past two years is greatly appreciated.”

The search will begin immediately for a new head coach.
