SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: Right hire is crucial for Crestview

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

The new coach’s job got harder last week, when junior All-State defensive end Denzel Ware withdrew from the school and announced on Facebook he was enrolling in school in Opp, Ala.

Since the job also includes an athletic director's administrative duties it’s important to have someone who cares about all the school's sports calling the shots.

In reality, the job is that of football coach first.

The coach/athletic director will ultimately be judged by the number of football games his teams win. No matter how successful the baseball team or girls soccer team might be, he will first be judged as the football coach and then as the athletic director.

It’s no stretch to say this hire might be the biggest in the Crestview football program's history. The right hire has the potential to set the program on a course for success for many years to come.

So let the search begin.

Here’s wishing the committee success in this all-important hire and the new coach a long and happy career at Crestview.
