    Define good?

    Money? Absolutely Not. Solid Returning Classes? Yes. Interest from Boosters/Fans/Parents? Yes. Top-Notch Practice Facilities and Field? No. Support from Administration/Assistant Coaches/Other Sport Coaches? Yes.

    So who is the next NCC grad that is ready to be a head coach?
    Cov Cath Defensive coordinator Terry Brown is an NCC grad.

    I'm basing that mostly on their last three years:

    2015 - 203 boys
    2016 - 191
    2017 - 177

    Is Yes really the answer to these questions?

    Hate to hear Dan is leaving, hopefully it was for the right reasons. If in fact they move to 1A it makes that job much more appealing IMO. Best of luck to whomever takes the job

    Job is appealing weather its 1A or 2A, the enrollment should go up in the coming years is what I have been told.

    I wish Dan the best of luck in his endeavors, he is a good man and I appreciate the time he put into the program.

    In four years 2 state runner up's a loss in the quarter finals and a second round exit in the playoff's... While the last two years haven't been ideal, the overall accomplisment in 4 years is pretty strong... I'm still not convinced there's not more to the story... this was Dan's dream job, and he still seemed to have the passion for coaching earlier this year when I talked to him.

    Apparently trees, a football coach, and a false narrative for starters...
