    Good luck coach.
    Offense he will run?
    Defense he will run?

    The dynamics of Fort Knox makes this job as well as any coaching job on Fort Knox almost impossible to succeed.

    I think the Single wing on offense is what I read on another site...not sure about the defense.

    Welcome to the graveyard of coaching. No stability with roster.

    I stand corrected....it does say Wing T...which is very similar to the single wing except from under center....good luck to Fort Knox.

    They were very successful in the past when Fort Knox as a base was larger and more stable. If I'm not mistaken, there are fewer and fewer soldiers stationed at Fort Knox anymore and many come in and out rather quickly, which keeps the school from developing athletic team rosters. Many of the permanent soldiers at the base live in and send their kids to Hardin County schools. Its an almost unwinnable situation but I applaud the school, administration, coaches, and families for continuing to provide athletic opportunities for the kids.

    I read it wrong...they used to run the single wing and had moderate success with the offense. Now they are going to the Wing T with the new coach...which as I mentioned earlier are similar offenses.

    You take this job with the understanding that priorities are different in the lives of these kids. I read that article a couple years ago about the school programs that had to stop practicing and I think even cancel a game because the government was in a shutdown for a temporary amount time.

    I applaud anyone that wants to take on this type of job, and results shouldn't be the deciding factor on whether he is a successful coach or not.

    Just curious...does one need to be a military member to coach/teach at Ft. Knox?
