Retirees

June 5, 2013

This fall at least two of the more successful football programs in the area will have new coaches. Milan has just named Ed Wagner as their new coach. Ed is coming from Bedford North Lawrence where he has been a teacher and coach for the past 7 years. East Central, earlier this year, named current assistant Justin Roden their new coach replacing Tim Behlmer who retired. It is much more difficult to go out and find outside coaches this days. Most schools have a modified freeze on hiring which greatly restricts who you can look at as a future coach. This freeze is usually one that says only no experience or limited-experienced people can apply. Even though the administration might like to wave this for a high profile coach, the rest of the faculty would not stand for it–nor should they. Most schools will not hire head coaches in football unless they are also regular teachers in the school. I would suspect that you will see little difference in either of these two programs next fall, because their systems are well entrenched; and whoever is at the helm will do quite well. After all, Coach Roden and Coach Wagner are quite experienced and not a rookies in any sense of the term. The kids are still in place as are most of the assistant coaches. We will know in a few short weeks how this comes out. Good luck to both schools.

The Batesville community and beyond are invited to attend! The first session is scheduled for Thursday, June 26 and will feature a discussion around the emotional rollercoaster of cancer and the fear of recurrence.
