Brendan Morrissey has accepted the head coaching position at Milton Academy, bringing a close to his championship-laden stint as head coach of his alma mater, Milton High.
Morrissey led Milton High to its second consecutive MIAA Division 2 state championship last spring. His teams went a combined 44-6 over the last two seasons.
"It was obviously a very hard decision," Morrissey said. "I had to make the decision that is best for my future and my family. I think any coach or player wants to leave a place better than they found it. I'd definitely say we did that. I'm excited for the (Milton High) kids, the program, and the next coach. They're in an awesome position with a great culture. They'll have continued success. It's a program of winners, and I'm excited for them."
At Milton Academy, Morrissey will replace Matt Petherick, who stepped away following the spring season -- his 16th as head coach of the prep program. Morrissey also coaches travel baseball and is co-founder of the Matt Duffy Baseball Academy.
