Mark Jacobs, Head Coach for the Alpena Community College Men’s Basketball and Cross Country Teams, has announced his resignation from the Men’s Basketball program with the conclusion of the 2020-21 season.

Officials say the decision comes after Jacobs took on a new role for work that will involve a higher level of travel, making it impossible for him to continue coaching basketball given the schedule involved with the sport. Jacobs says he is hopeful that he will still be able to continue coaching Cross Country as it has a shorter season that would be easier to manage alongside his schedule.

Jacobs has been Head Coach of the Men’s Basketball Team since 2017, taking over after the retirement of former coach Frank McCourt. Jacobs saying, “Coaching basketball has always been a dream of mine. I greatly appreciate the opportunity that I had to coach here. I have made some lifelong friendships from several of my players and to me that says it all.”
