A high school coach for Kentucky retired just before his team's District Tournament semi-finals match-up, according to Kentucky.com.

Head coach Greg Coldiron retired due to his health issues. But it wasn't enough and their team lost to Lexington Cathloic in an 88-69 loss. The players were questionable about their coach, and so was interim Sean Noble. He tried hard to boost his team up.

"What happened with Coach [Coldiron] weighed heavily on all our minds," Noble told the Lexington Herald-Leader. "We said a prayer for him before the game, and I thought the kids were as up as they could get.

"But we ran into a buzz saw. That's a great Catholic team that played great."

Coldiron admitted it was not the right time to retire as coach. Coldiron has been coaching for 27 years now. Here's what he told Kentucky.com:
"My doctor gave me orders that I need to step away from it right now," Coldiron said Wednesday morning. "I know it's terrible timing, but I have to do what's best for me and my health."
Coldiron said he has had heart issues for the last year. He also has diabetes.
"My doctor is scared, and I'm scared about it," he said. "I haven't taken care of myself like I should."
What do you think of all of this? Should he have coached, or not?
