Leafgreen out as Tahlequah hoops coach

Mike Leafgreen is out as Tahlequah’s boys basketball coach, according to a tweet posted on his Twitter page recently.

“This is one of the harder things I’ve had to do. Not looking forward to it,” Leafgreen tweeted. He later responded to someone’s question on Twitter by saying, “I had to tell my guys I wasn’t coming back.”

Leafgreen confirmed his dismissal to the Tahlequah Daily Press on Thursday.

Recently wrapping up his second year as Tahlequah’s coach, Leafgreen led the Tigers to a 8-16 record during the 2012-2013 campaign. The Tigers were eliminated from postseason play in the first round of the Class 5A regionals when they suffered a 56-53 loss to 5A No. 14 Chickasha.

Leafgreeen went 22-24 during his two seasons at Tahlequah.
