Monmouth Academy has dismissed Scott Wing as head coach of the girls’ basketball team after winning the past two Class C state championships.

Wing confirmed Friday that athletic director Wade Morrill met with him on Nov. 9 and informed him that he would not be back as head coach.

Wing declined further comment.

Tryouts for winter sports begin Monday. Monmouth is scheduled to open the regular season at Oak Hill on Dec. 8.

Morrill had not returned phone calls seeking comment as of late Friday morning.

Wing was promoted from Monmouth’s junior varsity to varsity head coach in 2011. He compiled a 111-51 record over eight seasons. The Mustangs went 5-13 in his first season and failed to reach the Class C tournament, then qualified for the playoffs in each of the past seven seasons.

In 2017, Wing led the Mustangs to the program’s first state championship with a 46-37 win over Dexter. They repeated last March with a 56-50 win over Houlton.
