McDormand, Scott Step Down From Coaching Positions
Two successful coaches in the central Maine area have stepped down from their positions as head coach on Tuesday. Tim Scott of Hampden Academy and Brian McDormand of Old Town have elected to resign from their roles as head coach of the Broncos and Coyotes respectively.
McDormand steps down after 25 years of coaching, including the past seven years with the Coyotes. In 2014 his Old Town team won the Class B title with a 64-39 win over Poland and had guided the team to two PVC conference titles in both 2015 and 2016. Old Town missed the playoffs in 2016-17 with a 5-13 record overall. McDormand's departure from the program is confirmed to The Ticket by Athletic Director Brett Hoogterp.
Scott leaves the girls' basketball program after being with the team for the past three seasons. Athletic Director Mike Bisson confirmed his departure on Tuesday and cited that Scott wanted to spend more time with family and to watch his daughter (Brooklynn) play next season without having to coach her. The Broncos had posted an 11-7 record during the regular season and lost to the Messalonskee Eagles in the Class A North semi-finals by a score of 70-31.
