William Mason

Athletic Coach,

Dear Bill,

Please accept this letter as my formal resignation from the bulldog athletic team. I have enjoyed my time with the Bulldogs over the past five years. Unfortunately, I’ve accepted a position in a neighbouring county. Due to this change, my last day will be two weeks from now, on January 15th. I appreciate your understanding.

I’m sincerely grateful for the opportunity to be in the school’s athletic team. Everyone in the team has become like family to me. I’ve learned so much here, and I look forward to using some of those skills in my new position.

I’m happy to help however I can during my last few weeks here and make the new coach’s transition as smooth as possible. Please reach out to me regarding anything I can do to assist you during this time.

“Nolan Santana

The coach

Syke football team,

City, State, Zip Code,

Dear Mike,

As of the date of this letter, I am resigning as a player of the Syke football team. While I have enjoyed my time and was looking forward to another term, recent events have made remaining a hard choice. As an alumnus of the Syke football team, I joined the team with what I thought was a clear understanding of the membership. I believe the team has lost its focus over the last few years.

As everyone knows, I was disconcerted by the team’s methods in selecting the new player. It felt like a buddy system was in place and a choice had been made before a single applicant had been reviewed. I felt our responsibility to lead the selection process as opposed to circumventing it only hurts the teams’ authority and credibility.

Unfortunately, my dissatisfaction with not just the selection Ð whom I feel has neither the experience nor background to sufficiently play, but the process has left me in an awkward position with the team, and at odds with the new player.

To my mind, I cannot effectively operate as a team and see this resignation as my only option.

Best regards,

Nolan Santana”
