FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - The Saint Francis women’s basketball team will need to find a new head coach, with just a couple months left until the start of a new season.

Coach Jason Ridge informed his team earlier this week that he was leaving the program.

Ridge has taken a new job as the principal of Blackford Junior-Senior High School, a move that became official after school board approval on Wednesday night.

Saint Francis went 17-10 last season, with an 11-6 record in the Crossroads League.
