MAIDEN – Frank Snider, a varsity head basketball coach at Maiden High for 21 seasons, announced Monday he is retiring.
Snider is leaving his position as head varsity girls’ basketball coach after three seasons. He held the same position for three years in the early 2000s and also coached the boys’ varsity for 15 years over two tenures.
He was not immediately available for comment on Monday.
Maiden went 6-8 last season to finish fifth in the South Fork 2A. The Blue Devils were 14-14 and 9-17 in Snider’s two seasons prior to that.
He will leave with an MHS girls’ record of 70-76, a boys’ record of 168-213 there and an overall MHS record of 238-289 with four girls’ state playoff teams and 10 boys’ postseason teams.
Snider’s nine years as a head girls’ coach includes a three-year stint at Nations Ford (S.C.), where his teams were 40-30.
He also coached boys’ varsity teams at Central Davidson (19-9) and Southern Durham (11-14) for one season each, giving him an overall boys’ basketball record of 198-236 in 17 seasons.
With a girls’ record of 110-106, Snider leaves with an unofficial overall basketball mark of 308-342 in 26 seasons.
In football, Snider was a head coach for six years – at St. Stephens in 1998 and 1999 (3-19 record) and at Maiden for four years starting in 2012. Maiden went 8-4, 11-2, 5-7 and 9-4 under Snider, who resigned after the 2015 season. All four of those teams reached the state playoffs.
Snider has 271 athletic coaching wins at Maiden in basketball and football (all documented by HobbsDailyReport.com), and he was head coach in 748 games (unofficial total) in baseball, basketball and football.
Snider’s records as Blue Devils head baseball coach aren’t complete (coached 1986 through 1992 and again in 2002 with an unofficial record of 56-114-1 in eight seasons).
With those 56 victories, Snider coached Maiden teams to at least 327 wins in three sports.
