INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (AP) — A northeast Iowa girls' basketball coach who complained of threats by parents is reconsidering his decision to resign.

The Independence Community School District says in a statement released Wednesday that head varsity coach Rod Conrad is considering remaining in the position after meeting with district administrators.

Conrad and assistant coach Rob Ratchford announced earlier they would quit after bullying by some players' parents and other critics of the program.

Ratchford says some parents threatened to fight the coaches.

Ratchford doesn't plan to return, but Conrad says in a statement that he's been amazed by the community support since going public about the situation and was giving "serious consideration" to remaining.

Conrad notes administrators had moved to "tighten up and improve the parent-coach protocol in our district."
