ATTLEBORO, Mass. – Bishop Feehan High School announced today that long-time Girls Basketball Head Coach Mike Deady is stepping down from his coaching position effective immediately.

“It has been the greatest privilege of my life being the head coach of the girls basketball team at Bishop Feehan High School,” said Deady, after informing his returning players on Monday afternoon. “I'm grateful for the support I've received from the school administration and my many assistant coaches. I look forward to an extremely bright future for our girls basketball team.”
Added Feehan Athletic Director, Gary Doherty: “Coach Mike Deady built Bishop Feehan’s girls basketball into one of the premier programs in the state of Massachusetts. Since 1998, Mike’s program was built with a tremendous amount of hard work and sacrifice, resulting in on- and off-the-court success for an entire generation of Feehan basketball players. Feehan is immensely grateful for passion and success that Coach brought to our athletic program for so long.”
