Sorry to hear Coach Kleman is retiring, but he had a fantastic run at Ottoville, no losing seasons, and 8 final fours, Thanks for all the memories Coach Kleman, you put Ottoville girls basketball on the map in Ohio, so to speak. Good luck in retirement.

Von, any chance you want to move back to NW Ohio?

At my Thursday night card meeting I heard 2 names. 1 in the school system and 1 not. I would think as soon as it happens it will be all over the news. Whoever it is I wish them the best.

I would but wife won't.


































Sorry, my wife won't go to Ohio. I hate CA except for the weather, where I live, close to kids and grandkids. No I am too old to coach and I was not very good . I support whoever they get. I hope it's a younger person who gets a job at the school. and who will hang around for years like Coach Kleman, (maybe a former player)? Don't have a clue, have not heard anything yet. Thanks for the good thoughts. Ottoville is a great town. They love their basketball.

Michelle was going to be my guess. Theres also another name out there. She coaches Junior High I believe and played in college. Those are my 2 guesses that I feel strong about. Both would be excellent candidates.

It wont be Thourban and I doubt Lindeman. It's either gonna be Leach, the girl I mentioned that coaches junior high who played college ball or a wild card name that hasnt been mentioned

Mr. Thourban is the Principle I believe, I don't know if that matters, plus he has a couple younger daughters coming up who could probably play. Tough decision for AD Mark O. & the rest of the staff. I am sure they will pick a good coach. Good luck.

Tough shoes to fill. A former player would be an ideal candidate. My people tell me his wife recently won a significant amount of money from the lottery???

Agreed, but after 27 yrs, a seven-figure windfall makes this as good of a time as any

I know nothing about the $, none of my business. It was just time to retire.
