I heard recently that my high school football coach has decided to leave the program and take the head coaching job at a rival school. I am sure it wasn't an easy decision for him, and it's hard to fault him for it -- apparently they were offering a significant pay raise, and he has a young family to take care of. And yet I can't help but feel a bit sad about this. My two brothers and I, and all of our friends, were very close to him as both players and alumni. It is strange to think that he won't be there anymore, and even more strange to think that once a year he'll be on the opposing sideline.
