Any truth to the rumors that we are down yet another coach (Boyeas)?

Unfortunate that Bene could not benefit since he no longer teaches and just focuses his effort on coaching .
Bortnick is a class act. He's one heck of a coach also!

I am on the same page with not being upset about him leaving.
It's more worried about fielding a full, solid staff by summer.
I know many coaches have moved on. I haven't heard much on replacements.

Usually just a spectator but I had too put in my two cents on this- I think Chris and Coach Welo are excellent people, really good young coaches (administrator also in Chris’ case) and they are going to certainly improve this season, but if you look around the area you’d see a lot of Benedictine grads on other staffs and have to wonder why they are not “coming home”. This is just what I’ve heard from other coaches, but there are former teammates of Chris who were interested when Carter was hired and they weren’t even given a call back. You have a very smart and successful Defensive Coordinator who is living in Texas and he wasn’t even given a call back? Two coaches at a school in your own region and no interest? Those types of things hurt your program. Simply put, at a school like Benedictine, the more alums and former players you can get (who are qualified) the better off you are.

I know it is a different situation, but Coach Conroy was another young and upcoming guy who absolutely bleeds Columbia Blue and White and they let him walk away.

Anyways, good luck to the Bengals this year, I for one believe Coach Welo can have long term success and that Chris, while young, works tirelessly for his alma mater and will be great. However, maybe they should see “whats under their noses” so to speak and get some alums back here!

Remember we must listen to Matt Wilson, a coach who is no longer under contract: "Coach Welo is a leader who will change things around."

All I see is a sinking ship with players not coming back. Word is that there are several starting seniors who do not want to play for "the man". Looks like a loooooong year for Benedictine football.

Obviously you didn't read Matt Wilsons post. Even though he's bias and great friends with Lorber, you're supposed to believe Welo was the correct hire and that lorber is doing a stellar job.

Maybe Carter is going with the CYO approach and have a 3-4 coach ran program? Iron man coaching. Both sides of the ball.

I think Lorber Chris is taking his advice from the wrong people. Board members need to financially support the school and keep their hands off the every day operations, they are the ones that are destroying Benedictine. Especially the guys in Michigan and Illinois.

Welo was the boards hire, the best candidate is in the building and it's Koby and second-best is now the head coach at Padua.

I'm hearing the same about 3 players that would be starters, considering not playing because of no confidence or trust in the direction Carter is taking them

Right, a kid would play for Charles Manson if he thought he could get a scholarship. No parent in that area would complain about about Jr. doing it either.

My counter would be "who cares" about to bench riders not coming back. More than likely they are not getting playing time so they rather spend their time playing X-Box. Any supposed starter looking to quit would be delusional because quitting on principle only lets down your "brothers" and yourself in the long run and they would be a cancer in the locker room.

What I've heard, they have 6 coaches right now, and there are rumblings about 2 surprise other hires coming.

The 2 guys in question, one is a backup receiver that doesn't want to compete for a spot. And the other has been on the fence every year since Schafer was the coach. The way we grew up is we'll win with you or without you, can't beg kids to play if there hearts not in it.

If you are referring to John Berdysz, he's the DC for Valley Forge. Also on that VF staff is Joe Nawalaniec, CBHS class of 2012

Nothing official has been released yet. Not saying you are wrong just saying they should have had a press release if there was a vote taken to approve and folks should know...

That's fine, just the institution should have had something ready to go once the decision was made, in this day and age news even at this level is a on a 24 hour cycle. I think that they need a Minister of Propaganda over there to keep control of the flow of information, that's all.

With that being said I think this is a good move. Many times I feel like the Monks don't look forward enough and stifle some of the better new ideas because they don't fit into their narrow definition of the school. Unlike some here I think the '78 guys are a valuable asset to the institution and I hope their voices get stronger. They are highly successful men with good ideas and have well placed energy, not curmudgeons waxing about the good old days.
