Boys basketball: Jaguars’ head coach Montbriand retires

Montbriand, the Jaguars’ head boys coach for 21 years, announced his retirement Friday, just weeks after his team won their second Class A state championship in three years.

“I was tempted to come back,” said the 53-year-old Montbriand. “But this feels like the right thing to do.”
