The start of football season is already a hectic time
for coaching staffs.
Now imagine if you were first told not even a week
before the team's first practice that you were taking
over a program.
That is what happened to Bill Hannah.
Last year's head coach Rob Heller left in late July
to work at a new school district.
Enter Hannah...a former assistant....who is now the
new head coach.
It's different no doubt.
It's definitely different because we went through
a whole offseason with him and his program.
For me it was more of a shocker because I never expected
the old coach to leave but now we have Hannah which
is an old coach we are used to.
We had him freshman year and did well with him.
At our camp which was two weeks before football there
were like 15 people at camp and that's freshmen through
And then our coach left.
So 15 people, no head coach.
As the head coach I want to make sure these kids have
a positive experience.
My name is attached to the program now so how they
perform, what they do, what they look like, and who
they are in the community all reflects our program
and reflects back on me now.
