In an anticipated move, Dean Henderson confirmed his retirement as Meadville's head girls basketball coach Wednesday.Henderson submitted his letter of resignation last week, which is pending approval by the Crawford Central School Board at its next meeting.
"It was not an easy decision," said Henderson, who coached the Lady Bulldogs since 2002."When you put that much time into something, it's difficult."
The time, however, was right.
Henderson, who retired initially in 1998 to spend more time with his sons, Matthew and Kyle, is retiring this time to follow his daughter, Abby in her collegiate basketball career at Penn State Behrend.
Abby, who was in seventh grade when Henderson took over the program at MASH, was a four-year starting point guard for her dad and the Bulldogs.
"Abby is going on to college," Henderson said."That was one of the main reasons.She is going to Behrend and trying to play at Behrend.And if she does get into sports, I want the opportunity to be able watch her."
After 48 seasons of coaching - 35 as a head coach - over the last 36 years, Henderson certainly deserves that time.
Henderson concludes his basketball coaching career, which includes stints with four different programs, with a record of 441-253.He amassed a record of 97-57 in six seasons at Meadville for an average of 16 wins per season, helping to turn around a program that had just three winning seasons in over a decade.
This past season, the Lady Bulldogs went 20-8 and advanced to the District 10 championship game for the first time since the 2001-02 season.
"We've left every program better than it was when we picked it up," Henderson said, referring to we as he and his coaching staffs."We were fortunate enough to win championships at each of the schools and Meadville is no exception."
And Henderson believes the Lady Bulldogs can continue their winning tradition even in his absence.
"The future is now," Henderson said."The bar has been set from the past alumni and it's up to them to keep the bar where it's at.There's a good group of kids coming up through the program and they've seen what it takes."
Henderson began his coaching career in 1972 as the head football coach at Venango Catholic and also became the school's head boys basketball coach in 1973.He maintained both positions until 1978 when he moved to Meadville to become an assistant football coach at Allegheny College.
In 1981, Henderson, while still coaching at Allegheny, took over as the boys basketball coach at Saegertown.He resigned at Allegheny in 1985, but continued to coach at Saegertown until 1990 when he assumed the same position at Cambridge Springs.

Varsity Head Coach Dean Henderson
Meadville Tribune--Turning to hoops, 12 Feb 2006 [cached]
When Dean Henderson and his wife, Paula, moved into their new home in Meadville in 1978, Henderson gave his wife some simple instructions.
"We're not going to pound any nails in the walls," he recalls telling his wife."We're not putting up any pictures."
Henderson's main objective wasn't trying to protect the appearance of his newest investment, rather he just didn't anticipate living there long.
"We weren't staying," said Henderson, who was an assistant football coach at Allegheny College at the time."My goal was to move on in college; I wanted to be a college football coach."
Twenty-eight years later, though, not only has that home had a few holes put in the walls, but some renovations as well, all with the approval of its owners: the Hendersons.
"We're still here," Henderson said.
A lot has changed since that day Henderson vowed to live in Meadville only a short while.
The Slippery Rock University graduate is no longer longing for a collegiate football coaching position.Instead, he has become one of the most successful high school basketball coaches in northwestern Pennsylvania.
In fact, on Tuesday, Henderson joined an elite group of individuals when he led the Meadville girls to a 57-29 win over Grove City for the 400th win of his career.It was a feat that Henderson never expected, especially being a "football guy" and all.
Ironically, however, it was football that drew Henderson to his first basketball coaching position.
Henderson was the football coach at Venango Catholic - then Venango Christian - when the boys basketball coach, who at the time wouldn't allow his players to play football, stepped down.Henderson, who led the Vikings to a 25-22-4 mark during his six-year tenure as football coach, went to the headmaster and asked to coach both teams, marking the start of his basketball coaching career in 1973.
What a decision it was.
Henderson coached V.C. for five seasons, leading the Vikings to a conference crown in 1977-78, a pair of District 10 titles (1975-76, 1977-78) and a trip to the PIAA western semifinals (1977-78).
In 1978, Henderson returned to his passion for football as an assistant coach at Allegheny where he served under head coaches Sam Timer and Robert Wolfe.But he never strayed far from hoops, coaching the boys basketball team at Saegertown simultaneously.
"I just sort of kept my fingers in basketball," Henderson said."I was leaving the football field at Allegheny and going to Saegertown to coach basketball."
Henderson's football coaching career came to an end in 1985, but he continued to coach the Saegertown basketball team, leading the Panthers to the French Creek Valley Conference championship and the state playoffs in 1989-90.
From there, Henderson went to Cambridge Springs where he spent his most successful years.He led the Spa to four league titles, two District 10 runner-up finishes and the PIAA western finals twice.He was 98-24 as the head coach of the Blue Devils.
In 1998, Henderson finally announced his retirement from coaching after an eight-year stint at Cambridge Springs High School.He left with a career coaching record of 344-196 over 22 years.
"I always felt like I got so much out of sports," Henderson said."It basically put me through college and stuff like that.I felt like I owed it back to the sports."
Henderson didn't stay in retirement for long.In 2002, he was presented with a great opportunity at Meadville.
With Henderson's daughter, Abby, just two years away from the varsity program, Henderson felt returning to coaching was almost too good of an opportunity to pass up and one that gave him the unique chance to coach 400 victories.
"It's been a good run," Henderson said."I've been at four schools where there have been quality people everywhere.
They give a lot of the credit to Henderson.
"We're glad we have a good coach like (Henderson)," senior guard Ivy Deegan said.
"It's a lot of work (playing for Henderson)," she said."He's intense and stuff, but he gets the best out of you.He knows what he's doing."
Seeing the success of players like Heller, Deegan and his daughter, Abby, is exactly why Henderson is still coaching.
