Decker Steps Down
Highly successful St. Peter's Prep Head Coach Todd Decker has stepped down. Decker built Prep into one of the top teams in the state and the east.
This past season Coach Decker led St. Peter's to a 26-5 record against a very tough schedule. They won the Non-Public A North championship and finished ranked 10th in the state by NJ Hoops.
Decker released the following statement.
"The last 8 years have been great. I will always appreciate my time at Saint Peter's Prep for the great school and tremendous community it is. I am extremely proud of all that has been accomplished here both on and off the court.
For the last month, I have really struggled with considering the decision to step down. I have discussed it at length with both Coach Hansen and the staff, and come to the conclusion that it is time to go on to a different phase of my life. I need to prioritize my new born son, family, and career, so it's best I move on. To be a head coach at this level is a 12 month full time job that I feel like I'm not able to fulfill to level I have been able to in the past.
I would like to thank the staff for all their help in what we have accomplished, and look forward to the continued success of the program. We want to keep the program in the family.
I also want to express my love and thanks for every player I have coached during my time here. Our success has been all about them."
