Bill Bellatty, citing "coaching burnout," resigned as boys' basketball coach at Calabasas High after the Coyotes' 74-63 loss to Cabrillo in the first round of the Southern Section 2-A Division playoffs Friday night.
Bellatty, 47, made the decision three weeks ago after Calabasas qualified for the playoffs for the fourth time in his five seasons as coach.
"It was just taking too much out of me," he said. "Emotionally, I was drained from Thanksgiving to the end of the season."
Bellatty had lost 35 pounds since the start of the season and recently broke out in hives.
"The weight loss has always happened to me," he said. "But I've got a rash all over my back right now and that's never happened."
