That’s not the reason. If being unable to beat Hobart in those days was a firing offense, there would have been a lot more turnover in the DAC.

Janis Qualizza fired Rick Wimmer due to Wimmer's inability to beat Hobart.  There were certainly other mitigating factors but this is the primary reason for the firing.  

Qualizza felt that Wimmer did not relate well with the players.  She also felt that MV should be beating Hobart due to their enrollment advantage over the Bricks.

Don't think its fair to put Coach Good in the @DT crosshairs just because Crown Point hired Coach Buzea  The article clearly stated that CP was the only job in NWI that he would leave for.   The

Mark this one down GID friends.   It truly can happen!!  😀 Concur, this was a HOMERUN shoot for the moon, add all sorts of superlatives to this hire.    Wish the Bulldogs well

I wonder how he managed to win state championships at two different schools, then? That’s not exactly common. Perhaps there was an official story, and then the real story.

Wimmer was a real hard ass when he was at Greenwood when I first met him.  I imagine he was much more difficult in his earlier years.  I think he started to mellow a little at Fishers.  But he has always been a hot head.

Region Sports Network is reporting that Crown Point has hired Homewood-Floosmor and former Portage and Michigan City head coach as their new field general.  Crown Point will have their best coach since Brad Smith.

 

For the record, Chip Pettit was 72-51 in 11 season with CP, taking over a program that was 0-10 in the year 2000.

CP had back-to-back undefeated DAC title in 2005 and 2006. In Chip's final season, CP was 9-4 and won the sectional championship.

Coach Chip was very, very good.
