Dondrell Whitmore has resigned as head basketball coach at Sherwood High School.

“I just felt like it was time for a change,” said Whitmore, who guided Sherwood to a 13-10 record last season. “I always wanted to become a college coach.”

The 37-year-old runs a non-profit program for student-athletes and also has a 12-year-old son who plays basketball at Montrose Christian School in Rockville.

Whitmore, a North Carolina native, spent seven years at the helm of the Sandy Spring public school’s basketball program and captured a state championship in his first season, guiding the Warriors to the Class 4A title over archrival Magruder during the 2006-2007 campaign.

“I felt like that was a great accomplishment,” said Whitmore. “I felt like I accomplished a lot. I felt like it was becoming a basketball school.”

Whitmore’s departure marks the second straight year the Sherwood athletic program has lost a varsity basketball coach. “I told him he should have left a long time ago,” said Deontay Twyman, who played on Sherwood’s 2007 state title team. “He never got credit for what he did. Too much bs to deal with.”
