Connecticut football coaching vacancies reach 20: Lewis Mills

We have indeed hit the magical 20 mark in Connecticut high school football coaching vacancies.

Lewis Mills has posted an opening for a varsity coach, meaning Greg Todd’s two-year tenure is over.

We don’t have all the details on this one yet. All we know is the Region 10 athletics website lists a head coach vacancy for the 2013 football season.

Todd, who has 24 years experience and was an assistant under Chris Anderson at Woodland when the Hawks won back-to-back state titles in 2004-05, became head coach of Lewis Mills before the 2011 season.

He took over for Pete Flammia, who began the program as a junior varsity outfit in 2009.

Todd was 2-18 during his two-year tenure. Lewis Mills went 0-10 in 2012.

    Sean, what do you attribute all the coaching vacancies to? Pressure? family obligations? there seems to be a litany of issues but the football coach in a school is a very valuable person the educational process… I just don’t think that is the consensis of most administrators.

  3. @Steve_Wilcox – hard to pin it on one thing. I think it’s a litany of stuff. It’s a year-round commitment with incredible amounts of pressure — inside and outside. If you have a family, especially a young family, it makes it much more difficult to put in the necessary time required to be successful.

    Coaches need an ideal situation to thrive or even just trad water at some places and, unfortunately, ideal situations are tough to come by. I’d say extremely rare.

    It can be extremely frustrating and I don’t think the tolerance level matches the demands.
