I will address this topic some. Bob Sphire is in a situation very similar to the one Tom Duffy was in when he arrived. Got the program turned around and heading in the right direction but stepped on some toes in the process. Winning cures a lot. The big question with Bob is how many more years does he have left? There is plenty returning for the Birds next year to be in the hunt again. The key is to have classes mesh so that best are getting on the field.
I firmly believe that the next coach is residing in Fort Thomas and coaching in Ohio. Missed the first time, but will not miss twice. Only question would be how they employ him.
As for QB next year, there are three kids to fight it out, but two are really good “football” players and will find a place to play somewhere. Name to remember for next three years, Gabe Williams.
