After racking up over 300 wins as a head coach with five appearances to the Allstate Sugar Bowl/LHSAA Baseball tournament in Class 3A, Tait Dupont is moving on.

The Brusly baseball coach and athletic director resigned earlier this month to pursue other opportunities.

Dupont spent 10 years at Brusly, two as the head football coach and eight as the head baseball coach and athletic director.

Brusly was two wins away from reaching the semifinals again, losing in the quarterfinals to Iowa.

"I love the people at Brusly," Dupont said. "I'm excited about new challenges. I want to thank Walt Lemoine for giving me the opportunity."

Lemoine, who coached Dupont when Dupont was in high school, praised the coach's work during his time at Brusly.

"He was here 10 years. He's going to be missed," Lemoine said. "He did some good things here and we wish him the best."
