The Easton Area School District includes Forks Township and Palmer Township. Both are growing communities. The Phillipsburg School District includes only Phillipsburg. It's old, completely built up, about one-fifth the population and in decline. I imagine the disparity will only get wider.


Correct, buy how's this for NJ govt. inefficiency. The neighboring area is Lopatcong Township, and they have their own school district. However, the Lopatcong Twp School District only operates schools until 8th grade, and then send their students to Phillipsburg High School. The Phillipsburg School District is happy to accept those students, and charge a large per student fee to Lopatcong Twp.


 In fact, besides Phillipsburg, pburg HS receives students from a larger area, including Pohatcong, Alpha, and a growing area, Greenwich Township.  The high school district recently built a brand new school facility in a location that includes a spacious recreational complex, outside of Phillipsburg.  Their football team competes in Group 4, which is the second largest school group in NJ, right behind Group 5.

If anything, I'd expect their high school population to grow in the coming years.

Just an aside ... if you hate the Patriots, it's Michael Jackson's fault.

http://www.espn.com/blog/afceast/...ound-started-with-michael-jackson

Previous owner Chuck Sullivan, who sold the team to Victor Kiam but kept Foxboro Stadium, used the arena as collateral to finance the Jackson family's Victory Tour, a massive flop in 1984. Sullivan also paid $18 million to own Jackson's merchandising rights for five years.

Sullivan went bankrupt and was forced to sell the stadium in 1988.

***This all led to Kraft buying the team.

One things that goes unmentioned here is the lack of interest from other colleges in our former coaches, especially our coordinators. Most guys usually land jobs. Our guys have not and hiring season is within about 30 days of being over.

This is sheer speculation, but something about Lafayette leads me to think that some of the staff received more than typical college coach severance pay. That would give them time and opportunity to look things over more carefully and to look after their families' best interests.

I could be dead wrong about this, but I hope I'm not.

Lafayette may just have honored the remainder of their contracts. Asst contracts normally run until June. With the change in HC it would be unusual but very clasdy and thoughtful thing to do.

DL coach has been hired. He has been a ga at several SEC schools. It will not be announced until after the signing date.

Mickey is supposed to be taking the WR position at Harvard.

The asst. coaches did get a nice severance which is definitely not the norm. Most of the time coaches stop getting paid as soon as the new staff is hired. But even with a severance you don't want to wait around too long. If you miss the hiring window now then you end up sitting on the sidelines for another full year.

The UConn guy is not the guy I know. Though he is also from NJ.

Also, Link has accepted the HC job at Christopher Newport

Speaking of UConn, the Ryan Dickens story (which has become national news) probably is the most publicity UConn's football program has received in quite some time. Cool

You could be right. I don't know anything on that. Just surprised our guys are looking at high school jobs.

Speaking of high school jobs, I have two friends that are head football coaches in Texas. Both pull down over 150k base. And they don't teach a class. A third guy is the AD and head coach and he makes near 200. These guys have had D1 asst coach experience.

Here is a tidbit for you...every high school in Dallas has an indoor training facility for football. And all sell season tickets and they are sold out. Georgia and Florida are almost as big but Texas leads the way. South Carolina they do nothing hit coach. In NC they teach a PE class.

Fein was officially announced today as WR coach and passing game coordinator at Harvard.  While technically a step down, being associated with Harvard for a few years may actually help him in the long run.

Congrats to Coach Fein. It's tough to read that as a step down given Tim Murphy's longevity and the nature of the Cantab staff.

UConn - Dickens story rehashed yesterday in the Inquirer in a feature story about how the best coaches are the best recruiters with bad press for them and good press for us.

I would not assume this is a step down. Pay may be better. Fein's wife was very close friends with McKittrick, still is I guess.
