Verb-ed modifier should modify the coach as he was thrilled with the team's performance.

A,B,D are out.
E is out because of incorrect tense. He was thrilled and that's why he announced a day off. He didn't announce a day off prior to feeling thrilled.

C is the correct answer.

A easy SC noun modifier question!

Thrilled with the performance of his team and the win over an arch rival This should modify coach, so "coach" should be following the comma.
Only C and E follow this.

E has past perfect had, this means coach announced a day off before he was thrilled with the performance of his team. Absurd!
E out.

C it is!
