Seriously! Going from college to D4 is quite the drop. How much they pay to coach at NC? Sheesh.
Realistically, if he was given a teaching job with years of service and a good coaching salary at NC he MAY have received a bump in pay or at least a lateral move while being closer to home and less hours involved.

He’s a good man. Lives around Newark. He’ll have a chance to win at NC. Probably a lateral move Financially, but probably a better job. Good luck.

I have not seen this one listed but West Geauga has once again let go a basketball coach, they will be looking for their 4th coach in as many years. Between football and basketball it looks like the parents are making the call on the guys running these teams.

In Southern Ohio Waverly is looking for new varsity boys head coach and so is Wheelersburg. Wheelersburg boys varsity coach (Ater) is now the new head coach at Chesapeake.

Did Van Buren decide to "move the program in a different direction" or did their coach take another job?

It is interesting. Niekamp was there for the last 5 seasons and had some success, especially early on. The last 3 years though they went 21-48 but did finish 3rd in the BVC. Never won a tournament game in 5 seasons. The timing is interesting. Maybe he landed a position elsewhere...like say, Liberty Benton!!!

interesting — have you heard that about the L-B job?

When Coach Gerken stepped down, I thought that Austin Gardner would be an ideal candidate to replace him at L-B. It appears that ship has filed with Austin taking the job at D1 Marietta.

Well, the BVC has been really, really bad the last two years, so 3rd place isn’t saying much. Riverdale won a conference title if that says anything.
