The Classic Suburban is changing it up I see. Or should I say "Metro East"... :roll: Ruined a wonderful conference name.

I see why these schools would want this, having to play with STA, Hill, and even Mahtomedi for that matter.

Story in local paper said he has taken on more teaching responsibilities, and his wife wants to pursue doctorate so he wants to free her up for that..and he was going to do youth reffing with his son.

Simley coach got fired, North St Paul coaches retired after 20 years, and the Sibley job was given to Corey who had more time.....so a coincidence.

New coaches will have a slightly easier go of it next year with Simley, SSP, NSP, and WSP all down to a single game vs the rest of the conference. Could see them keeping each other as non-conference games to keep some rivalries, especially Simley/SSP.

Parents more or less run that program, but I believe the head coach this year had his son on the team, looks like he only wanted to coach his senior season, Kotenbeutel was the coach and his son was leading scorer I believe.

Sad that 30-40% turnover in past 5-6 years
Add Farmington to the list! Look for the former coach to go back to the girls team, his daughter will be on the team. A good team for a good coach to take into the South Suburban next year.

Robbinsdale Cooper will be merging with Armstrong next season...so there is one coach in search of a job. I'm curious to see if the coach's kid plays with Armstrong or heads over to Benilde, he's a stud.

I doubt that MSHSL will allow a 38 yr old to lace them up....otherwise I'd tear sh*t up :)
