Chris Sweet will return as head coach of the Duxbury boys’ lacrosse team. Superintendent of Schools Susan Skeiber said late Tuesday afternoon that she and Sweet had a “productive” hour and 20-minute meeting to discuss the status of his contract.

“I think we’ve come to a good resolution, with him being coach,” Skeiber said.

At a School Committee meeting last month, Superintendent Susan Skeiber informed the board in a closed door session that Sweet’s contract, which is year-to-year, would not being renewed.

The move provoked outrage from parents and current and former players, who signed an online petition and took out newspaper ads in an effort to get the coach reinstated.

Skeiber said it was not the pressure from parents and players that resulted in the renewing of the contract.

“It was really the discussion we had,” she said. “We were able to get to the bottom of some issues.”

Sweet has been the coach ay DHS for 14 years, leading the team to seven of the last state titles.
