Former Jamaica athlete John Mair has resigned as head coach of Vere Technical.

Mair, who helped Jamaica to bronze in the 4x100m at the Rome 1987 World Championships, told he resigned right after Penn Relays.

“Yes I resigned,” confirmed Mair, who went on to state “I want to get back close to my family.”

Mair said he wishes the team well.

The 1991 Central American and Caribbean Championships 100m champion spent six years at the Clarendon-based school.
