Wouldn't it be crazy if the CCIW poached both coordinators from EMU?



That would be a big happening.  Yet, where would he possibly go at this time, i.e. aren't all the open HC positions in the CCIW now filled?

Mike Swider announced his retirement shortly after Wheaton was eliminated from the playoffs and Wheaton has not announced a replacement as of yet.

Thanks, Pat.  A lot going on with the recent holidays, but how could I forget that one, especially since he is a former Wheaton/player grad? :)

Id expect an announcement on that to come some time next week, perhaps earlier in the week.

Wow I can't believe NCC ended the Mt Union dynasty forever. (I know they didn't cause the HC and AD changes but I'm going to tell myself they did!)

LK: I'd like to welcome you all here today.  Obviously, this a time of transition but myself and this great university are committed to preserving the tradition of excellence that exists here at Mount Union.  With that said, it is my privilege to introduce the next head coach of Mount Union football...

Haha, great post!  Swider always did remind me a steroid-free Ultimate Warrior (moment of silence).

Nothing specific unfortunately. Many names have been tossed around on here and it's probably a safe bet that some of those are in the mix.
