Monadnock’s Avery resigns

Ryan Avery has resigned after spending the last four years as Monadnock Regional High School’s varsity football coach. He said he made the decision for family reasons.

“We have six children and four of them are still in the house,” Avery said. “I’ve already missed a lot. I can’t be at the practice field when I know my daughter is playing a soccer game across the street.”

Avery, 44, said he submitted his resignation Friday after discussing the situation with his family.

Avery led Monadnock to the Division III championship in 2018. The Huskies finished as the Division III runner-up in 2017.

Avery, a Swanzey resident, graduated from Monadnock in 1994 and spent seven years as an assistant at Monadnock before taking over as head coach. He said the program is in good shape for the school’s next head coach.

“Our numbers are down, but from talking to other coaches I think that’s the case at a lot of places,” he said. “We’ve been in the playoffs and a contender every year. I think we have six seniors coming back and a good supporting cast.”
