FISHER — Marking the second major coaching change in the last two weeks, Ron Ragle resigned from his position as the head coach of the Fisher boys basketball team Friday.

“It was very difficult, very tough and emotional,” Ragle said of his decision to step down. “I’ve devoted 10 years of my life to it. I’m probably the only one in my family who agrees with the decision.”
