In The Star article he said he’s been presented with some new opportunities and felt it was time for a change. College assistant maybe?

You think he would leave BD to go join Coach Wright's staff in Florida?

I think it could be a possibility. Also wouldn't be shocked to see him in Bloomington.

Not a surprise at all--his wife retired from working and he's gained two grandkids, and he moved to the Pittsboro area all within the last two years.

From the outside, few realize the level of challenges that are involved leading the Ben Davis football program these  days==and, I don't mean just football.  Best of luck, Mike!!

The speculation that I added involved a coach who both already resigned his position and a school that has no head coach.  My bad.

even so, we have always honored the process for each the Coach and the School.   

We are not in the rumor game or the breaking news game.

Nothing concrete, but things have gotten more interesting by the day. We continue to wish him the best.

Do you have any idea if the hire is expected from inside the school or are they looking externally

Zero clue. You hear all sorts of rumors. I have no inside knowledge. This is the first time in a long time that BD has been in this position. 

I will say this, the names I've heard in rumors are all excellent football coaches.

Not sure this is a very attractive job, unless the money is just over the top.

Given Ben Davis' size and resources, anything less than a state finals appearance every year is likely deemed a failure.  

Coaches by nature are builders.  There is nothing to build at BD.  The job is a maintenance position.  

Or a big stroke to the ego of whoever takes it on.
