Any word on who is going to take the Archbold job? Some big shoes to fill as Coach Krauss has decided to retire

Good question...one of the premier jobs in NW Ohio. Archbold rarely had a "down" year & that's a testament to Coach Krauss & his staff

I'd say it's the most difficult time ever to coach boys basketball at the varsity level. Coaches want one thing, control. And that's just not possible today anymore. You have youth teams with parent coaches who are able to navigate playing time easily with short rosters and multiple games in one day. Easy to justify sitting kids. But when you get to the high school varsity level, you have generally 7-8 kids in your school - weather it's a school of 50 or 2,000, that you need to work with on game night.
Players can play well in a wide open, run and gun, no defense AAU / travel ball, and really struggle playing in a system where they are not taking shots whenever they want and the value of possessions are more. That kid may be the best one on one player on the team, but he can't play with other kids.
We also have at time when parents simply cannot stay away. They are constantly siding with their kid in every instance, they don't like coaches trying to teach their sons life lessons through sports, although they probably need them. Athletic directors/ principals and superintendents need to back their coaches to the hilt. Unless there is some kind of abuse or illegal activities going on, they need to let the head coach, coach their players the way they want to.
At the preseason meetings, parents and players need to be communicated what is going, how it's going on and it has to be held uniformly. You let your best player miss practices and not do things that are expected, then you are not living up to your end of the deal and any criticisms are warranted. Otherwise, parents need to stay out of the way. These young men will not grow if Mommy and Daddy are constantly trying to greece the skids for their kids. We have kids in college now who can't think and do things for themselves because they've been enabled their whole lives.

Coaches main job is not winning games, it's about about developing kids into young adults.

Monroeville has filled with a stud from their '76 Regional Runners-up. Paul Roeder is the new hire after spending the last 2 years as an assistant.

Seneca East is open again. 4th coach in 7 years.

My source tells me Miller City has narrowed it down to 2, I am guessing JV coach Ross Kaufman is one of the 2.

Come on, if the dad coaches at the school, why wouldn't the kids go there? That is not recruiting. Go Defiance next year.

I don't think Zachrich is coaching at Defiance next year, at least not yet. Believe me, his kids were not recruited to play at Defiance.

Jeff Kloepfer was brought back via a 3-2 vote Monday at USV. The Rams were 18-4 last season and I have posted six consecutive winning seasons during his six years at the helm.

Not exactly a ringing endorsement .... they need to know their place in the pecking order these days. Be happy with a conference title and getting to districts. That's the peak folks ....
