GREENFIELD — Rita Rouse will not return for a fourth season as the Greenfield-Central volleyball coach after complaints from a number of parents apparently swayed the administration.
Rouse said Friday that her contract will not be renewed at Monday’s school board meeting, following her refusal to step down.
“I was asked to resign, but I’m not quitting,” said Rouse, who added that she will not attend the board meeting.
Greenfield-Central administrators confirmed that they’ve heard from parents who did not agree with Rouse’s coaching style.
Superintendent Dr. Linda Gellert said the school was “carefully investigating all complaints, because I think that’s a responsible response.”
Rouse believes she has treated all players fairly.
