Thompson took to Facebook to announce her resignation as head coach of the team Wednesday, citing commitments to her family as one of the reasons for leaving.
"My family and I will be cheering them all on from the stands and hope that we all can come together to support, encourage, and cheer for each of them..as a player and as a team," part of Thompson's post read. She also noted in it she officially resigned Aug. 1.
After joining the program before the 2014-2015 season, Thompson led the Lady Knights to the Class C state title in 2015-2016. She also gained celebrity status earlier this year, when the well-known lobsterwoman was spotlighted in a commercial for the restaurant chain Red Lobster.
