One of Gwinnett County's most successful high school baseball programs over the past decade is looking for a new head coach.
North Gwinnett principal Ed Shaddix announced Friday that Frank Vashaw has left the Bulldogs' program after eight seasons as head coach. No reason was given .
"Frank Vashaw has resigned his teaching and coaching position effectively immediately at North Gwinnett High School," Shaddix said in a statement emailed to the Daily Post on Friday morning.
Vashaw confirmed his resignation in a text message later in the day, but could not be reached for further comment as of press time.
Vashaw guided the Bulldogs to a 153-91 record, culminating with a 15-13 record this spring that included qualifying for the state playoffs, which North did in all eight of his seasons as head coach.
Included in those postseason berths were appearances in the 2007 Class AAAAA state quarterfinals and the 2010 Class AAAAA state semifinals.
For his career, Vashaw has 424 wins and numerous state playoff appearances in stops at North, Coffee County and Cook County, including winning the Class AA state title in 2000 while at Cook.
