The Mobridge-Pollock School Board at a special meeting Wednesday, July 23, accepted the resignations of volleyball coaches Kari and Rick Bolduan and approved the immediate advertising to fill the head coaching job.

A crowd of more than 20 people, included part of the volleyball team, attended the meeting. Those who spoke to the school board supported the Bolduans and requested the board refuse to accept their resignations.

After listening to players, a former player and parents of students in the district, the board went into executive session to discuss the matter. After the executive session, the board reconvened and board president Bingo Kindt told the group the board had little choice but accept the resignation of the coaches.

“There is nothing we can do legally to protect these coaches,” he said. “At the advice of our attorney, we have to accept their decision and their resignations.”

He said the Bolduans were asked to reconsider, but they declined.

Board member Eric Stoeder said that he wanted to note the appreciation of the district for years the Bolduans had dedicated to the district and the program.

“It is with great regret that I make a motion to accept the resignations of Rick and Kari Bolduan,” he said.

The board approved the motion and then approved to advertise to fill the positions immediately.
