Chris Krueger has resigned as athletic director and wrestling coach at Denver High School, the Denver Community School District confirmed to Waverly Newspapers on Thursday.

Kruger announced his decision in a tweet posted at 10:14 a.m. Thursday, saying he has a “business opportunity” that will allow him “much deserved time w [sic] my family that my current jobs have deprived me of.”

Krueger submitted a letter of resignation Tuesday, according to Denver Community School District superintendent Brad Laures.

“I am not able to talk about personnel issues regarding employees,” Laures said in an email to Waverly Newspapers. “We are currently looking at options for the AD position as well as the wrestling position and hope to fill these positions soon. We have a great group of very talented wrestlers who will continue to do well.”

“I look forward to lifting weights with Camden, watching Cael wrestle in college, ample grandpa time w Creed’s son, date nights w my amazing wife, & valuable time with my ailing father and my mom,” Krueger continued in his tweet.

“I will not miss the headaches of AD(lol) but I will miss like crazy coaching the amazing young people on my wrestling team!”
