DSU women's basketball coach Andre Goldberg resigns
Andre Goldberg said Friday that he is resigning after three seasons as Dickinson State's women's basketball head coach.
Goldberg said he and his wife, Courtney, are leaving to pursue job opportunities in his home state of Colorado.
"There's some opportunities that came up out there that we were hoping for and were interested in," he said. "It's kind of a tough deal, but really we're just looking to move closer to family. There's never really an easy time to leave somewhere."
Goldberg compiled a 40-45 record in three seasons with the Blue Hawks and had a 16-18 record against Dakota Athletic Conference competition.
He took the job on an interim basis the summer before the 2009-10 season after Guy Fridley resigned to become the principal and athletic director at South Heart High School.
The Blue Hawks went 15-13 in Goldberg's first season, after which he had his interim tag dropped and became full-time head coach. The team went 15-13 again in 2010-11 and finished 10-19 this season.
Goldberg said he hopes to continue coaching in Colorado and is weighing a few different options.
Goldberg, who is also DSU's sports information director, will be employed by the university until June 30.
