Who will make that decision? They're two very different contracts. The AD is part of the world of teachers. An AD is a teacher on assignment, and that gets done by the principal and the district. The coaching part -- we have a coaching union in this district m and there's a committee that's formed to hire a new coach. That committee is made up of a teacher, someone from the community, a player, and they make a recommendation and ultimately the district and principal will make a decision. Your resignation comes at a time of some criticism from boosters and other parents. How much did that play a role in your decision? It would be naive of me to say it didn't play any role ... but it didn't play a huge role. I think what people don't sometimes understand is the most critical people are ourselves. The person most critical of the loss is the coach. I think people out there sometimes think that coaches don't care ... but we care more than anybody. So I didn't need to hear criticism on not having a good season; I heard myself every day. Did it play a part? Yeah it did. But I think the whole social media part of it exaggeratedit a bit... Parents I think mean well; they just don't see the big picture very well. And we're all that way as parents ... I remember when my son played for us and one night my wife wanted to know why he wasn't getting to play more ... That's the wife of the head coach looking at it through that prism ... But that's part of coaching. Criticism is out there ... but it should stay ... out there. You brought in (defensive coordinator) Jeff Schmidt this year with high hopes. Some insiders say that didn't go well. How do you think it went? I think Jeff brings enthusiasm. I don't feel that Jeffwas as good a fit into our program as I would have liked to have seen. And I think that's where I'll leave it. Anytime you hire someone you try to predict how that fit's gonna be. Jeff wasn't a bad fit, he just wasn't the fit I was hoping for. Plus he comes in on the heels of Sam Merriman, who's as good a defensive coordinator as there is in the state. But you had to love Jeff's enthusiasm. He brought that. So it's Friday night next September and the Vikings are playing at the Pop, maybe Bothell, maybe Woodinville. You won't be on the sideline. What will you be doing and what will you be feeling? If I stay out of football completely, I'll probably be at the game. These are still kids I've coached, kids I love ... I still teach here. It's not like I'm leaving with some kind of a sour taste in my mouth -- which sometimes happens. So maybe (longtime Bothell coach) Dee Hawkes and I will sit together in the stands. Mike Dale (Pop Keeney Stadium supervisor) painted a seat for Dee Hawkes up in the comer so maybe Dee and I will s'l,t together. In your letter of resignation it was reported you said lnglemoor football is in a good place. Coming off a 2-7 year, 19-20 the last fouryears, 11 straight losses to Bothell ... what's good about it? Couple things there that I would in some ways reject... people talk about 11 straight losses to Bothell, and people in our community here say that, too. Well a lot of people have 11 straight losses to Bothell ... What's Woodinville's record to Bothell? I think it's 1-10. (It's actually 2-9 over the same span.) What's Redmond's record to Bothell? So it's not like losing a lot of games to Bothell means you're not very good ... Bothell's been very good for a long time. So I kinda reject that notion. Coming off a tough season I told the kids that a break here, a break there and we could been a 6-3 team. We're right there, kinda in the middle third but trying to get into the upper third. Is your youth program where it needs to be? The youth program I thought got better.'It's getting better. It's not where it needs to be but it got better, don't quote me wrong there. Our numbers are up and I thought the quality of our youth coaches came up. In the last two years we made a much more concerted effort to make that program part of our program. Up until then we were very spoiled. Our two feederj unior highs -- Northshore and Kenmore -- had really good programs. When they went away we had this void, where we have a junior program that isn't where it should or could be... So we got on that right away. It's not where it needs to be but it's moving in the right direction. These things don't turn around overnight. What will yon miss most about coaching? For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is ternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." -Romps 6:23[ Thru the Bible Radio | To fistcn: 820 AM radio at 6 am or 12 noon, weekdays ) (mp3 or strcamin, anytime " GENTLE DENTIST I DANIEL J, RYAN D,D,S,, P,S, I [1( ='f'( We Cater to Cowards .............................

That's what concerns me the most. I'm just gonna have to find an outlet to compete. Personal competition. I think sometimes people don't realize that when the kids are competing, so are the coaches. So where in my life do I get to compete? I need to find other outlets. One of my good friends is an avid golfer who plays a lot of tournaments. So that might be an outlet, because I'm gonna need an outlet of some sort. Competition is too ingrained in me.
