It's the same program I've been the DC for the last 2 years. Our HC is moving on to a different bigger program.

Just one question. Did you wear a suit and a tie to the interview.

He got the job, didn't he? More like "what color was the suit and tie that you wore?"

Interview? Hahaha. It was

HC - "Hey, at the end of this season I'm moving on to another program. I want you to take over. What do you think?"

Me - "Hell yes. I thought it would take me another year of making you look good before I could move you out of my seat."

HC - "You're an ass. I knew you were a good fit when i hired you"

DP there was no formal interview as it was more of a passing of the baton so to speak. I interviewed for the DC position last year. Brought all my Defensive and Offensive stuff with me. Based off that interview and my performance last year and this year I was asked to take the position. Had i declined they would've interviewed outside candidates but the job was never officially posted anywhere.

Congratulations
The greatest accomplishment is not in never failing, but in rising again after you fail.

Makes perfect sense to me.  If they've got the guy they want, why bother with anyone else?

Exactly. No point giving 5 others the run around and getting hope's up when the decision is already made. After last summer I'm sure you would've appreciated that courtesy.

Who's decision is it ultimately? The HCs or the AD?
