Trice said early Tuesday that there was a group of kids at MHS that he hated to leave. "It was hard to make the decision. I was close to this group and felt that they were close to me," he said. "The business opportunity that came up was the major factor in my decision because it was one that I felt I could not turn down. I had told the boys that if I remained in coaching I would stay here." "They are a special bunch of kids here," he continued. Trice's two-year contract was not renewed by the M.I.S.D. board in Mar- ch. He was left with one year remaining. "I've got one more year," he said, "but it comes up in February. I could go 15-0 and win state next year but there are two school board members who would not change their opinion of me."
