Jeffrey Shank is no longer employed at Gulf High School and is out as boys basketball coach, Buccaneers athletic director Travis DeWalt confirmed Thursday afternoon.

“Jeffrey Shank is no longer employed at Gulf High School,” DeWalt said. “We’re looking to fill the position as soon as possible. That’s our time frame for hiring someone at this moment.”

DeWalt stated he has no further comments on the situation.

In Shank’s lone season as basketball coach, he led the Buccaneers to a 10-14 record, with the season ending in the Class 5A-District 8 quarterfinal loss to Ridgewood (62-55).

Shank was tabbed as the successor for Buck DeWitt after the 2010-2011 season when DeWitt was forced to step down due to health reasons.
