Nearing the end of the press conference on Saturday, Coach Jerry Petitgoue was asked if this would be his final year on the sideline.
Petitgoue said he would make his decision at 9 a.m. Monday morning and with his voice breaking, Petitgoue said the decision will be good. "I've been a liar for the past 10 years," Petitgoue said. "It will be good, whatever happens, happens it's been one hell of a career."
On Monday, Petitgoue didn't lie when he made his decision to return for one final season at the helm of the Cuba City boys basketball team.
"There is no backing down and when it ends next year, it ends," Petitgoue said. "I needed to set a firm date and this gives the school district a year to find a replacement. I really enjoyed a lot of these juniors this year and look forward to coaching them next year."
Petitgoue has amassed an unprecedented 44-career record of 820-200 making him Wisconsin's winningest coach. There was no speculation on Petitgoue's part who would replace him on the sidelines after next year, however he advised the administration to look closely at his assistant coaches. "They have been very loyal to me."
