Despite winning 164 games in seven seasons, Scott Vance has been ousted as head baseball coach at Madisonville.
"His success rate has been very successful,” Stevens told the newspaper. “His baseball knowledge has been very good. It’s just a failure of communications following directions of the KHSAA and school board procedures."
Vance was 164-83 (.664) in seven seasons as head coach of the Maroons, which included seven district titles. However, Madisonville has not enjoyed the same success in the region tournament. The Maroons have not won a region title since 1979.
Madisonville was 25-10 this year, losing to Henderson County in the region semifinals.
Vance did not comment to the newspaper, but hinted he may seek legal counsel about Stevens' decision.
