Wow, that is a big blow to Montgomery County....2 of the 3 head coaches stepping down.  Neither will easily be replaced.

 

I read the article about JD Minch retiring but does anyone have any insight into why Chris Ervin "retired" as well?  Thanks in advance!

Drooke,

Yes, I hung it up at the end of the season after 19 years as head coach at C-Ville.  Basically, I'm just tired. I still love the sport, but I don't have the time and desire to do all of the out of season things anymore that are needed to develop a program.  Both of my kids are at an age (9 and 14) where they are involved in lots of activities and I don't want to miss them. I will still be coaching the elementary wrestlers in our club (and also coaching youth baseball and football), so I will be involved in the program. I plan to get my officials license and stay involved as much as possible. It is not official yet, but it looks like my long time assistant, Roger Tribbett, will be the head coach next year. He is committed to the program and to the kids and he will do a great job! Thanks for asking.

Chris Ervin

FORMER head coach - Crawfordsville High School

Any of these school have a PE or Health teaching opening? I would be interested in applying for a teaching and coaching position if any school has that opening..

Chris, Mike and J.D.:  Our sport is losing classy coaches like you.  I will miss seeing the three of you around.

 

 

 

                      P.S.  Can you talk Peckinpaugh into going too.                                  Jon

Twin Lakes does have an opening  . the way I understand is Half the day as health and other half as PE teacher.

I heard somewhere that Wingler from New Pal is leaving?!?!?  If so, that is too bad.  He did an excellent job of taking that program from the trenches to being a contender.  If this is true - best wishes, Coach Wingler, in all your future endeavors!

You are right, he resigned when he learned his job was cut at the high school.  Here is the article

I was surprised to see Coach Maglis on this list.  Any reason for the departure?  I assume they have a replacement in the wings.

Probably the biggest coaching name as far as developing a program available right now.  If a school around the Indy area has a teaching opening for him they are getting great coach and teacher here.  I'd sure love for him to move back to his home town and help out.  ;D

Anyone know what happened to Carlson at Bishop Luers.  I know that they have struggled, but seemed to have numbers growing, and they had some individual success with Lovejoy.  Did he step down?  Is he still teaching?

Heard from a reliable source that Bryant Whitaker will be the new Wapahani head coach....
