H.D. Woodson girls’ basketball Coach Frank Oliver Jr., one of the region’s most successful coaches, said he is resigning from his position at the Northeast Washington public school.
Oliver, 33, took over H.D. Woodson in 2004 and helped return the Warriors to prominence, producing four All-Met players in his tenure and becoming a mainstay in The Post’s Top 20 rankings.
In eight years, he guided the Warriors to seven straight D.C. Interscholastic Athletic Association titles and 98 consecutive league wins, while compiling a 167-51 record. His teams regularly posted lopsided victories, including a 94-0 win in 2010.
“I think it’s time for me to just move in a different direction whether it be at another high school or college,” Oliver said. “I think it’s time. I think everybody gets to that point where you want to reach others.”
This winter, Oliver guided a team of only eight players to a 26-6 record while playing a national schedule. The second-ranked Warriors capped their season with their third City Title win in the past five years and Oliver was named All-Met Coach of the Year.
