SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: Right hire is crucial for Crestview

Published: Tuesday, February 12, 2013 at 06:20 PM.

In hearing the scuttlebutt within the community, it’s obvious there are factions within the Bulldog family that don’t see eye to eye. Frankly, the family is fractured and divided; it needs a coach that can bring it back together.

Day could have united the community and helped heal some of the hurt ailing the Bulldog program.

With Day seemingly out of the picture to take the job, it's reassuring that he’s the guy leading the search for the new coach and athletic director.

Day’s lifelong love for his school and community will help guide the committee as it evaluates potential coaches. Day knows football's Xs and Os, he knows the Jimmys and Joes who will take the field for the Bulldogs in the fall, and he knows what kind of coach Crestview needs to be successful.

Crestview's new coach must get the Bulldogs back to winning after a pair of 4-6 seasons in which the school finished 2-3 in district play each year and failed to make the playoffs.

The coach also will be responsible with guiding the Bulldogs up into their recently announced 7A classification.

This job is not one for the faint of heart.
