RIBAUX STEPS DOWN AS GAITERS WOMEN’S SOCCER HEAD COACH
SHERBROOKE, Que. – The Bishop’s University Department of Athletics and Recreation announced today that Phil Ribaux has stepped down from his position as head coach of the women’s soccer team.
Ribaux, 31, is a Lennoxville native and has coached the women’s soccer team at Bishop’s for the last six years. The Champlain Regional College physical education professor played two years of varsity soccer at Brock University where he helped the Badgers win the 2002 CIS National Championship.
“I decided that this was the best time to make the tough decision,” Ribaux said. “My wife and I have started a family and I want to be able to dedicate as much time as possible to being with my son as he grows up. I also have many work commitments that can be time consuming. I will certainly miss the girls and being so involved with this great game.”
“We would like to thank Phil for his six years of service as the Gaiters head coach,” said Director of Athletics and Recreation Brian Breckles. “We wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors and I can certainly understand wanting to spend more time with his family. He is still young and has a bright future ahead of him.”
Bishop’s University will put together a committee to find Ribaux’s replacement. Details will be available on the Bishop’s Gaiters website.
