Strunk resigned after nine years on the job. During his time there, the team racked up 73 wins, three consecutive regional and county titles and a trip to the finals.
In his resignation letter, Strunk said he has had a "wonderful experience leading a great group of young men from the best community in Howard County."
"Over the past 3 years, I have endured a great amount of stress due to my inability to stick to my principles and frankly, I am tired," he said. "I see a great future for this program and will always support our young men as a teacher, mentor and as someone who cares."
