Just curious, how old is Coach Randolph? He's been coaching a long time, but I don't have a clue how old he is

He graduated from high school in 1970, so I'd say around 68

If the AA coach near the large body of water is nearing retirement, is Clafton a viable option?
He would certainly be interested. However, as I believe Coach Randolph made clear at the team banquet a year ago, he intends on being there until he gets the all-time wins record. :mrgreen:

I don’t think this is an option for Coach Clafton to pursue because if Coach Randolph joins Team North, then all Hounds players are ineligible to play on Team North.

Wonder if it could be a AA couch nearby a large body of water. He’s close to retirement.
Raider... if you were asking this in reference to my post about who was possibly joining Grant on the North bench, it's not Randolph.

He'd obviously be a great choice... But, it's not him either. To be clear, I haven't heard that the person I'm referencing has definitively said yes. Waiting to hear back from him. Same person may also be joining a Duluth area staff for the coming season.

What’s the status of the search for a new coach for Hibbing?
The coach hasn't been announced, but he is a great fit and has deep roots in the boys and girls programs in Hibbing. It will be great to have someone that will have a program wide approach finally.

Wouldn’t surprise me if Hibbing was the surprise team and got a home spot come playoff.

Has to be Pete Hyduke. Hes been a coach for both programs.

As for Clafton asking a "big name" guy to help out. I was all in on guessing Bruce Plante until someone said he may be an assistant with a program. His grandson must be playing on team north.

Now unless its Derek Plante....that could be interesting

Outstanding. Some good teams coming up for Hibbing. Great to know they'll have a committed coach.👍

If the new coach can get those incoming sophomores up to speed by midseason, I think you'll be right.👍

It’s got to be Mark DeCenzo coaching Elites with Grant. He’s now the Hibbing girls assistant under Pete Hyduke.
