    Back before Christmas I heard from an opposing coach there was some concern about Bethlehem having enough numbers to field a team. He was worried about it maybe affecting his schedule. Numbers are always a concern at small schools but it usually works out. He hasn't said anything more about it since then, either.

    I would dare say there's only about 3 or 4 teams in 1A who aren't concerned with numbers. And, it's just the nature of small school football. It's nothing against coaching or culture or anything of that nature. If there's less than 100 boys in the school, unless you've got 90%+ participation rate, you are going to have that worry.

    There are some interesting names circulating around this job, to say the least.

    I'd rather not at this point, but think HOFers.

    There are a lot of intriguing names either just getting out or have already gotten out of public school jobs who may not be totally ready to retire their whistle yet.

    Brent Holsclaw and Joey Downs are both retiring from Bardstown City Schools in May. Dudley Hilton has family in Bardstown.

    We may have to wait until late May for this to shake out.

    I would like to see Mike Glaser take his retirement at Saint Xavier in Louisville, and coach at Bethlehem High School. Mike would bring so much to this program. His enthusiasm is still unbounded. Mike would have a good ten years left in him to coach.

    That somehow feels like a really weird move to make, but also one that makes a ton of sense for both sides. If Glaser is to the point where he is completely retired, this would be a great job for him and a great hire for the program.

    Or not. Seems like Bethlehem found their man in Brian Walker, an assistant at Indian Hills in Cincy who played at Centre.
