East Bay announced Thursday that Indians baseball coach Bill Colome has resigned after six seasons. East Bay was 4-19 this season.

“I resign today as the Head Coach for Baseball at East Bay HS because my life has taken a different direction,” Colome said in the school’s release. “This decision is best for my family and the program, as well.  I appreciate the opportunity I was given and I am grateful for all the support I received from the community for the last 6 years.”

My name is Javier Diaz and I want to clear up something since Colome has chosen in bad taste to blame his resignation on the illness of a family member. On 4-8-2013 my wife an I filed a bully report in order to report the extensive bullying and retaliation that Mr. Colome has continuously gotten away with. After speaking to Scott Tipton Sports athletic Director, Maria GSell Principal, Attorney David Tirella, WFLA reporter Mark Douglas, and having several high officials from the district involved there was an investigation launched which is only reason for Colome’s resignation. On 4-25-2013 Mrs. GSell Principal called my wife and told her that the matter has been taken care of and that he has resigned. Gybely Diaz RN, Javier Diaz.

Mr.Colome is nothing but a bully. It is bad enough that we have kids out there that bully other kids but it is disgusting and completely unexceptable for an adult in his position to carry himself in the manner he did. Colome stated in one of his comments that parents will complain when you have a loosing team but if you go to the records you will see that we are one of the few parents that in the three years our son has played with Colome not one time did we complain about losses.
